Ward Shortridge

Over the weekend fellow photographer Ward Shortridge died at the age of 59.

I will forever be glad that I got to know Ward. He was thoughtful and humorous, and a perfectionist when it came to his craft. Through this past year he was working on new series which only reinforced my belief that Ward was one of the best photographers I’ve ever known.

See some of Ward’s work here:

The way he was able to approach strangers without fear or hesitation and capture soul-rendering images of them astonished me. His work will always inspire me.
