"LOVE AND INFATUATION ARE MUCH THE SAME EXCEPT FOR ONE LITTLE THING….THE SEPARATION IN LENGTHS OF TIME I HAVE KNOWN YOU."

Dear Photograph,
On February 15, 1998, to celebrate Valentine’s Day (belated), I went to the top of the Empire State Building in Manhattan with a girl. It was the first of many firsts. It was the first time I went on a date. It was the first time I visited the Empire State Building. It was the first time I saw, with my own eyes, the unmistakable Twin Towers that stood for everything we’ve loved.

The landscape of Lower Manhattan has drastically changed since then. But I will let this photograph serve as a memento that eternalizes this brief fraction of time that has been deeply buried in the back of my memory. Now as I revisit the Empire State Building again more than a decade later, I understand, for the first time, that it is only amidst fragility, chaos, and uncertainty we can see the best in the human spirit. And now I understand, for the first time, why I love photography.

-Kevin

"ITS FUNNY HOW NO MATTER HOW MUCH TIME PASSES, ONCE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE THAT FEELING NEVER GOES AWAY. I’M NOT SAYING YOU LOVE THEM THE SAME YOUR ENTIRE LIFE, BUT THEY RETAIN A PLACE WITHIN YOU THAT MEANS YOU WILL ALWAYS RESPECT AND ACKNOWLEDGE THEM. i love that."
