I had a friend contact me out of the blue the other day to say thank you. Thank you for bringing a smile to his face, and allowing him to be captivated by his own imagination.

Eugene Smith dedicated his professional career to bringing images to the masses unfettered by traditional media concepts focused on paper sales rather than truth. Commendable to say the least.

Some might say, he was crazy to do so.
