Eddie Maurice, Tucson Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement Birthed into a city of sweltering heat, I believe the sun has warped my mind. I began taking photos on a family trip to the Grand Canyon. My parents encouraged me to continue after seeing a glimmer of talent in those pictures. Since then I've taken a few college courses on photography. It wasn't until late 2007 that I began developing my own style. The majority of my photos are of my friends. They've been kind enough to put up with my insanity and help me grow as an artist. I thank them for helping share my interpretation of reality.
