If you could go back ten years, what advice would you give yourself?
Not too long ago I was reading Mary Ruefle and I remember this one part where she speaks of the voice within us, “a great weirdness” that we are all trying to listen to. It struck me, because I hear that voice all the time and I had distrusted it for so long. I thought my desire to become a photographer was some silly concoction of my youth and instead of listening, I pushed it far away so I could go on living some sort of pragmatic lifestyle I had assumed would serve me best. That worked temporarily, but soon enough that voice became louder and a bit more obscene. I realized that instead of listening, I opted to hide. So my advice to my twenty-one year old self would be to listen and to have faith in that voice. For me there will always be a battle between getting what I want and the desire to hide in fear. But what I’ve finally admitted is that I want a lot from this life. I want a lot for my heart, for my work, for my family, I want for so many things, and the only way to get it is to listen, to be vulnerable and to have a lot of faith in that weirdness within. -Adrienne Grunwald

"Anyone can take pictures. What’s difficult is thinking about them, organizing them, and trying to use them in some way so that some meaning can be constructed out of them. That’s really where the work of the artist begins. -Lewis Baltz"

Silas Murch, a 17 year resident of Crested Butte, CO. Wandering the town of CB yesterday searching for cues and characters. On assignment with Powder Magazine.
Currently on assignment in a snowy place called Crested Butte seeing what this place is all about. Photo taken on a late night ride back home via the free bus system.
Came home to a big box of negatives and proofs from the last few months of shooting.
This photo of Drew Tabke was taken while on an assignment for Powder Magazine last May covering spring skiing, pond skimming and all the antics skiers surround themselves with towards the end of winter. The assignment seemed like the perfect excuse to drop into waterhousing in order to try new angles on the otherwise well shot past time of pond skimming. The complete story won’t hit the shelves for another year but this photo ran in the most recent issue of Powder. Photo: Garrett Grove
