A while back I entered the NVAL 2016 International Juried Photography Show. The juror, Jack Fulton, was one of my favorite photography professors during Graduate School at SFAI. Jack wrote a kind and warm paragraph on my entered photograph. 

JUROR STATEMENT: “A Lifetime of Work” by Hendrik Paul is as sweet and dear as it can be. An older person, grandma, with her walker, not totally feeble, dressed nicely, bends over doing something in the kitchen. She represents each and every one of us as we age and slink toward infirmity but she is bathed in the warmth of light illuminating our very selves to comprehend what time and the meaning of life are about. Living life, having personal liberty and pursuing happiness is what it is about. The punctum here is simply ‘doing’.
