It’s hard to know what to say about Ted. I guess I’ll just say that he is one of the most brilliantly original photographers I know, tell you that you should make his Flickr photo page a regular stop and leave you with the words of Tom Hurndall that he has on his profile:
What do I want from this life? What makes you happy is not enough. All the things that satisfy our instincts only satisfy the animal in us. I want to be proud of myself. I want more. I want to look up to myself and when I die, I want to smile because of the things I have done, not cry for the things I haven’t done.
