happy “thanks”giving

one of the first things we are taught as children is to say “please” and “thank you”. once grown we learn that the word “thanks” itself holds only the meaning we assign to it by our intonation and use. we learn that it can be used sarcastically, or used to request things, or it can even be used to cause guilt. yet, on this one day of the year, our country withholds those definitions to celebrate the simpler and deeper meaning of “thanks”.

so on this wonderfully american Thanksgiving holiday, i wish for you to experience TONS to be thankful for; and thank you for allowing me to participate in your lives, for inviting me to document your history, and for welcoming me so warmly into your families; for that and much more, i am thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving

I shot this last year at dusk in Central Park in New York. I was freezing and there were people jogging wearing nothing but shorts!
