Oak Cliff Light: A Photo Essay

BY STEPHEN LOPEZ

Artist’s Statement

What is photography to me? My escape from reality, my own world where nothing else matters, but that moment I hear my shutter. Shooting on the weekends with my friends is where some of my most precious memories are made. When I capture a picture, I like to make sure it’s perfect. I am a perfectionist, and want to show nothing but the best.

    Quite nice. I saw the alphabet series and thought that was very inventive as well. An obviously talented young man.
