“Where there is light, one can photograph.” -Alfred Stieglitz

"As far back as I can remember, I’ve held this fascination and love for light. I have these moments from my childhood etched into my memory, not from the sounds or smells or anything in particular that happened to me in that moment; but from the light. The way the setting sun lit up the clouds. The way the rays of light streaming in my bedroom window illuminated the floating dust. The dappled sunlight filtering through the summer leaves above me as I lay in a hammock dreaming of tomorrow. I have always 'seen' the light and through the camera of my mind I have captured countless images that will remain with me forever. It seemed only inevitable that at some point in my life I would end up with a camera in my hand, capturing the light I see and sharing The Light of My Life." - Daniel O. Montaño
