Claire Yaffa took her first photograph 45 years ago when her son was 18 months old and it was the beginning of her journey, first as a mother, then as a photographer. She has worked extensively for The New York Times and Associated Press. Her photographs have appeared in countless influential publications and have been exhibited at major venues in the US and around the world.
Life is darkness and light. Shadows blend. A photograph appears. Is there more darkness than light? More light than darkness? Shadows obscure light. Darkness! Light! Life begins again.
