When I first walked into Taylor Camp with a camera and tripod everyone disappeared. I followed the trail from the road into the trees and through the community until I came to the treehouses along the beach. I heard a woman’s voice from above, “Hello! Can I help you?” It was Teri green calling out to me through a screened window in The Big House.
“Hi. I’m the photography teacher at the College,” I explained, “and I’d like to do a photo documentary of the camp.”“Great! Come on up.” said Teri. She introduced me to her sister, Debi, I did a series of photos that day including this one of the sisters, returned the next weekend and gave them several 8 x 10 museum grade silver prints from that session. It soon turned into a party with neighbors coming over to see the prints and then asking me to visit their houses and photograph them. Within a few weeks I was keeping an appointment book.
