"In my life, I’ve taken the path less travelled and seen things of great beauty along the way…
I’ve also walked through trash and found the sweetest of treasures.
I’ve photographed legends… surfed with stars... and lost those I’ve loved.
Throughout this journey, I’ve learned to find beauty in the joy of life.
The small things… sometimes — seemingly insignificant.
But beautiful. Fleeting. Loved.
I’ve photographed the thrill of victory and experienced the sweet smell of success.
I’ve also witnessed the agony of despair…
… and those vital moments in between the mountains and the valleys.
It’s those moments of purity. Simplicity. That in the end make life worth living.
I don’t create these moments. I only photograph them.
We all celebrate them. Every day. Captured. In our hearts. In our minds. For eternity.
Let’s celebrate these moments. Together.
Introducing Champagne, an image of celebration."
I recorded those words in my Champagne launch in 2016.
Now coming to an end the edition of this special piece and experiencing a profound change in the world, I have to honestly say these words hold more meaning than ever.
Thanks to the collectors who acquired this piece. I am truly grateful for your support.
It’s my hope the final editions of Champagne find homes that will remind those of the simple truths that make our life worth living.
