My name is Joseph Lally. I am a photographer, writer and film-maker and I would add: explorer into the mystery of existence.
It begins at night when I am dreaming data that I am transcribing into a book about existence on Planet Earth and the surrounding galaxies. Then day time is my life here in 3D which can be daunting at times considering what takes place on Earth. I often feel like an alien.
My grandmother gave me a camera and I started taking art pictures at age 8 that she would have the drug store develop them.
