Light from Darkness.

This photograph was taken in Lafayette, Louisiana. The woman in this photo is my good friend Kai Cotten. She is sitting on a bench underneath a parking tower. The faded mural behind her is of iconic places around the city. The main message this image expresses is the philosophical fact that you can't remove darkness without light. The look on Kai's face (a slight smile) shows this as well as the entire image. We must bring light into darkness before things can change.
