The tight grasp of an infant’s hand
on her mother’s finger is to me a feeling of hope, love, joy and peace. The
parent’s hope for the child’s future is filled with love, peace and joy, just as
it is for the future society that the child will inherit. The birth of every
child is a chance for this world to hold onto all the joy and peace that each
new born promises, with their tight little grip.
Deborah Scarff, owner of The Better
Light, a professional photo and digital imaging company, has worked in the
medical, industrial and commercial photographic fields. Her solo exhibit, “God’s
Light in Holy Places” at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Boston, was requested by Bishop
M. Thomas Shaw and traveled around the Diocese of Massachusetts in the 1990’s.
She has also just published her first book on Episcopal clergy and their hobbies
titled, “Pastimes of the Spiritually Rich and Famous, the portraits and personal
insights of Episcopal clergy on their activities for spiritual renewal”. These
two bodies of work represent the direction she is being pulled towards,
photographing different aspects of the church today. Currently she is having her
images from the God’s Light in Holy Places exhibit illustrated with poetry.
