Nelo Esteves, Keyport Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement I am a 38 year old gentleman and I have been taking "snapshots" since I was 7. I am currently disabled, recovering from a car accident that damaged several nerves in my neck. I suffer consistently from pain in my neck, head, shoulder and back as well as experience spells of dizziness and nauseousness. Together, they severely limit my normal day to day activities and make me reliant on my wife and family for things others take for granted. My recovery is ongoing, yet slow.
Somehow the simple act of shooting photos has become my saving grace. It allows me to escape my reality by capturing whatever beauty or uniqueness that may come my way. And often, I am very blessed by what does.
I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw, through my camera lens, in that moment.
