Raw, real, un-postured. “Moving in with Valentina” in Issue 4 of Salt & Water Magazine was a moment in time exercise of reflection and truth for me. In sharing with a few friends before publication, I found that both men and women related. I’m interested to hear more. Special thanks to Cynthia Owings Groseclose for her inspiration to push my expressive limits and her undying support for creativity, my co-collaborating Salt & Water family for their inspiration, Sasha Prince of Sasha Prince Photography for capturing us so beautifully, Nuage Bleu, and everyone who inspired this piece near and far.
