Dear Jerry Uelsmann,

I had the opportunity to hear you speak yesterday. The words you spoke were so moving and impactful, but it was the things that you didn't say that moved me the most.  Thank you for your soul bearing emotions that made their tender and wrenching way through your words. Thank you for showing your raw, vulnerable grief and struggle to resolve it through your imagery. Thank you for embracing all photography in its various forms. Thank you for reminding us that we are first and foremost humans and that it is the camera...a mere tool,  that is at our mercy.  Sincerely yours, Dawn
