Light in the Darkness by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

I took this photo one late night on my porch. I was thinking of a good photo with good composition, until got this Idea, so had a few candles around and started shooting. But while writing this story I thought on how we all sometimes face darkness in our lives. So to make it simple these candles symbolize when you are feeling down, depressed, or hopeless, you can always find happiness and joy if you only believe, believe that you can find it. Find that “Light in the Darkness”.

Jose was born in the small tropical Island of Puerto Rico. Since a child he always had dreams, dreams to become a someone and travel the world. Then when he came to the USA, he confronted hard situations where streets, alcohol, and drugs was always there. However, after many years, one day he woke up and said “this is not for me”, so that’s when he went and completed rehabilitation. He thinks it is life that makes him to love photography, He wishes he had a camera in those crazy days to show the world how people are destroying their lives today. He wants to thank Light and Composition and its staff for letting him follow his dreams and achieve his goals and travel the world to show everyone that its possible even if you are 37 years old, is never to late for anything.
