Below are a sampling of photographs by my friend, the photographer Caileen Kehayas. Caileen's ability to get at the the ticklish center of her subjects (in this case mostly her nephews Ollie and Henry) give her photographs a special warmth that feels intimate, poignant and delightfully captured from the slippery glimpses of life as it rumbles along. Caileen's photographs give me a sense of joy in the world and remind me not only of the big, heroic and hilarious gestures of early boyhood, but of the quiet clarity and jarring yet joyful isolation of simply being human. Enjoy! For more photos by Caileen Kehayas, please visit her photo blog: Pure Gravy.
