There's something magical about photographing an actor at the start of their career. They are filled with hope, their dreams not yet limited, still so in touch with why. They are not sculpted by the perceptions of others, I love the way teenagers in particular have such an innate understanding of who they are despite the challenges and confusion that comes with their time. I want to scream at them "That part of you, that part you know, hold on to it, don't let 'them' take that away from you. You are enough. You are powerful". It's as much a reminder to myself as the protective beast that instinctively rises around young people, especially young performers.
Piper Lowe is smart, grounded and radiates kindest. She is one young actor to keep on eye on.
