Richard Mauro Ricchiuti

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and often hated when my dad would stop and talk with everyone along our walks to his Italian social club or simply to pick up some shopping.

I took many things for granted back then as a kid and today have learned to appreciate the rich diversity (albeit not Brooklyn) that Northern Colorado brings.

Taking one's photos is often a very personal experience and I often channel my dad's way of connecting with folks, even if for a brief moment to experience the glimmer in their eyes.
