The Photographer

Hi and welcome! I am Alhy. As a child I was fascinated with photography. I adored the art so much that on the summer I turned eleven years old, living in Spain, my father gave me a camera for my birthday. I spent every day photographing buildings, people, the landscape—I took that camera everywhere. We had moved around so much, I wanted to remember all the faces and places.

Ever since then, photography has been my visual journal, how I remember my life—after a boating accident, for example, I still photographed from my hospital bed. I always had a camera in my hand, so I was the one people asked when they wanted to capture the story of their own lives.

I now have my own family and I use my love for photography to document the ever passing moments in my daughters life. I am that mom with a camera at story time, at the library etc.
