Please describe your present relationship to photography in detail. Such description can include  techniques, photographers you admire or aspire to, aesthetics, reason you photograph or love art, imagery and symbols, etc. This can be as broad and inclusive or as narrow and precise as you like. Be sure to discuss the concepts that are primary to your work. I want to get a clear idea of what photography means to you and how you want to use it.
 Finally include one image that really touches you deeply. You may tell me anything you wish about it. The image can be anything; a photograph, a magazine image, a painting,  whatever medium, but an image that you find compelling.
