You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known — and even that is an understatement.

My husband Johnny is my favorite subject. I photograph him frequently, and still I haven’t scratched the surface of really capturing all of the essence of him.

He is a wonderfully mysterious and complex person with many facets. He is a deep thinker, a dreamer, a creative, a romantic. He is just as well goal-oriented and driven, ambitious, clever and witty. He lives in the moment, but he doesn’t forget the past or the future. He fits in everywhere, but doesn’t quite fit in anywhere. He is gentler and kinder than any other human being I’ve ever met, and as much as he understands about the world, he doesn’t understand it. And it doesn’t understand him.

But I do. He is an old soul, and I think I’ve known him for a thousand lifetimes.
