I met Jana in December, while photographing at Maitri. I had been invited to document the work there as part of a multi-media performance to be created by Lori Shantzis, performer, writer and gallerist.
While working in the courtyard I was immediately taken with her personality and her boots. The boots she uses when she is Walking Through Peace. I pulled out my iPhone and recorded this video.
Afterwards she mentioned she needed someone to help document her work, and I volunteered. It has been a joy to get to know Jana. Those of you who already know her understand this. Those of you who do not, have boundless joy to look forward to. This is how my journey began. Click on the image above to play the video
