Through my wanderings I've had the good fortune to meet many memorable people. People, whom for me, define the land on which they live as much as it defines them. Most of these people tend to be just good plain folk who take pride in their work, their way of life, and who honor family, friendship and the land. They all have an interesting story to tell. While many of these photographs were made while performing an assignment or personal project, many of the people in them remain friends.
