For Tony, what is captured behind the lens is more than a mere recording of a moment in time-a photograph is a connection to the joy, love and celebration of life that we all share. A photograph binds us to the emotions experienced at a moment in our lives and allows us to revisit special memories long after the time has passed. Each time we look at a photo, a story is retold, never to be forgotten. It is this magic that Tony Hitchcock seeks to capture-the beauty of preserving those expressions and moments of joy, wonder and awe experienced in a lifetime.
A diverse education in fine arts, philosophy, political science and computer science has given Tony a broad and deep interest in the world and in those who inhabit it. Photography has been the ideal portal for the exploration and the telling of the stories of those he encounters, and most of all, for finding emotion flowing through light.
