I had just finished photographing a Fashion Week presentation, and as I walked toward the subway to go home (I was exhausted), I noticed smoke and fire brimming from an apartment building. All of the fatigue, moodiness, and exhaustion vanished completely when I advanced towards the scene; I was fully present in a way that astounded me. I imagined myself as an noted news photographer commissioned to photograph the story (while not getting too close to the very real danger). This recent experience reinvigorated my love for photojournalism and dedication to pursue it.
