The eyes of his subjects captured my attention, so I knew there was a very special man behind the camera.
When I asked Jayson where in San Francisco was most meaningful to his fuel of inspiration, he chose Dolores Park. It was a beautiful, sunny, early summer day. Jayson brought a picnic blanket, and we sat in the park for close to two hours. Our conversation carried on so organically, it felt like we were traveling around the world simply with our words.
A key reason why I desperately wanted to share Jayson’s journey was to divulge in his humanitarian efforts. Yes, he’s a beautiful photographer, his images will blow your mind. But the eyes of his subjects captured my attention, so I knew there was a very special man behind the camera. Our thought processes share a multitude of commonalities: all humans beings are connected as one, respect for other cultures, assimilate yourself to local settings…etc. But one strong takeaway that I hope readers truly understand is: there is much suffering around the world, yet all people are beautiful. At one point, we must put aside differences and help those in fragile desolation.
