Soul Portraits

. I have been an avid photographer since I was 14 and have acquired a significant archive of images. As I began to review many of them after Katherine’s’ death, I realized how several had something special about them.

Those selected for this Gallery portray a unique “Soul” quality that is hard to describe but is clearly apparent in the image
