From the Artist, JD Mims... I was born and raised in Chicago and moved to Sacramento to further my career in medicine. Photography was my way of tapping into the beauty, complexity and uniqueness of life and people. I am currently based in Sacramento California.
Ever since I can remember I've had the need to express myself artistically. It started with poetry and then progressed to drawing until I found a camera. I choose the camera because it allows me to incorporate so many intangible things as I tell a story. My style is based on magical realism. I love creating images that feel magical, surreal and emotionally impactful. I do this because there are endless stories that need to be told. These stories are part of our journey and part of our internal growth.
