samuelgasc Music is the language with which Xenia is most fluent. • • •

Must say that I enjoyed shooting for Anchor Chapel yesterday while Xenia lent her gift to the musical aspect of the service. Always has been and always will be a treat to serve together.

Fun... Check!
Beautiful... Check!
Talented... Check!

There is no one person who has influenced me more, inspired me more, caused me to laugh as hard, or taught me as much as Xenia Silva-Gasc. Life with you is an adventure and a treat.
Happy birthday, my love!

It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death." –Anne Frank

A weekend of the arts for us... My photos last night and Xenia​'s music today! I've enjoyed her music, in its many forms and varied disciplines, for over a decade now, and it still amazes me how easy she makes it look... #thatLAcommunity #creativelouisiana

samuelgasc • Highland Nights •

Burned the midnight oil getting some prints ready for today... Tonight from 6-9 PM I will be displaying some recent photographic work at Doctor's Dental on Highland Road as part of the area's Highland Nights. Come out and check out my work and the artwork of others along with enjoying some good dining and wining in the many businesses taking part of this local celebration of art.

On a related note... It has been some time since I last printed any of my work, especially at this scale. As such I'd forgotten the altogether magical quality of making a good print. In this largely digital age, the physical realm of photography often gets passed over as a non-requisite in consuming the work. However, there is an aspect of making a print, in engaging in this forgotten practice, that rekindles wonder. A moment, a brief glimpse of a time now past, recorded and reproduced to be revisited again. Memory incarnate. {Admittedly this last bit is probably the lack of sleep speaking...} Hope to see you folks out there tonight!

Hello, folks! Xenia and I are heading to D.C. in the morning, and I would love some suggestions for sights to see, places to eat, locations to visit, hidden gems around the city and any other helpful insights that you fine people can provide. Thanks in advance!

samuelgasc • Better Together •

Following an event given over to meeting others in our creative community, I'm reminded once again that we are, in fact, better together. And no one person exemplifies this more for me than Xenia Silva-Gasc. A woman of profound strength and courage, driven and devoted–I am fortunate to call her friend and partner, companion and fellow laborer. Life is hard work, but it's made all the better, all the richer, all the more worthwhile when individuals of this caliber come alongside to help. I'm better because of her. Two are better than one.
