I launched the first episode of "Why?" because I was teaching a workshop and nobody knew who Mary Ellen Mark was. So, I went off on a quest to feature the movers and shakers in contemporary photography. Well here we are almost two years later, and we've not only learned a little more about each artist, but there's always been great insight and lessons being shared. These lessons have been as diverse as the artists themselves.
Lewis Kemper joins me as the 100th artist in the series. He's a photographer, printer, writer, educator and never slows down in his passion for wildlife and the outdoors. In fact, he's been teaching and helping photographers capture/create better images for over forty years.

The story he shares about his "Why?" image reminds me of a quote about patience:
"Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action;
it waits for the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way."
Fulton J. Sheen
