A photographic history of Daniel.
A photographic journey into relationship by Robert Craig. Watch the video.
The quiet shouts
Who are you?
To where shall I go?
The calm answers
Emptiness leans in
How can one measure
With nothing in hand?
And you will know
by Robert Craig
I found the book painful, brave, and beautiful.”
Each time I have read this I feel like I am reading from the inside of a human heart… broken, ravaged, and yet giving room for a new life to begin. Your style of writing is powerful, painfully honest and brutally transparent. I cannot imagine that anyone who takes the journey into your journal would not find themselves face to face with their own realities… and hopefully their Creator.
The use of poetry, aligning thought and emotion with music and photography… a very profound and universally inviting way of allowing readers a chance to see and perhaps understand something deeper within themselves.
As I began to read, the words came to life – I was captivated – encapsulated – I was living it with you. I was riding that rollercoaster right beside you – at times I felt that the weight of emotions was way too much to bear – but hope lifted me up just in the nick of time – every time. “
The pages of When the lights go out – An intimate self-portrait are illustrated with original images captured by the author, and carefully selected for the connection they have with the thoughts on the page.
Some of the passages in the book also cause certain songs to come to the authors mind, and serve as sort of a soundtrack for the book.
