A Turning Point-Images to Words is a reflection of my life and work over a twelve year period. I collected these writings over a span of twenty years from people whose words I found resonating within me. They also challenged my perception of life. The continuity of the book is not in the photographs but is rather achieved by the flow of the passages: one leads to the next. The photographs are there to support the writings, and not the reverse.
“This book reflects the process I went through in order to be able to do the work I love. The book is about discovering what you love to do and having your life move in that direction.” -Victor Gagliardi
