A Stellar Flare of Young Adult Writing and Visual Art
BY STEPHEN LOPEZ
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.
