Hey, Jeanette 👋🏼. What is your Instagram handle so peeps can follow you?
@agospelofdirt , it's the title of a chapter from Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan. I gave it my own meaning, something like organized chaos, from nothing comes something harmonious :)

What keeps you making photos and taking snapshots for the gram?
 I want to share my perspective; creatively it challenges and motivates me. I like to surprise myself, like "wow I can't believe I made that!"

What are you most passionate about and why?
Making something great with great people. 

What are you up to now?
I photographed the current exhibition for the Mexicarte museum. I am editing those now. I shot them in HDR, which was new and exciting. I've got some work coming out soon with Audacity Zine
