Buildings And Institutions Will Not Shape Your Child’s True Potential

At What Cost Does Our Current System Of Education Come? The developed world spends billions of dollars on education and is continuously moving the goal post on what is expected from our children.

Beauty Is In The Eyes Of The Creator. Not The Beholder.

“The color of beauty is light.” -Greg Pai Without light, there is no way to literally see beauty and there is certainly no need for photographs or photography. Light represents the fullness of all colors, visible and invisible, in the spectrum. So, why is this important?

Do You Know When To Stay Still?
