"The making of the negative alone is not the making of the print."

(- Alfred Stieglitz, 1897 -)

"I found "My Picture Tells A Story" absolutely compelling, moving and utterly original. Mr. Schlosburg has managed to capture raw emotions in a way that conveys more to the viewer than would written words. I found myself coming back to the images many times with each visit experiencing something new. I highly recommend this book/work of art."

(- Andy S. -)

"A book of images combining excellent photography and human stories. A wonderfully creative idea beautifully executed. You will be moved and uplifted by the photos in this work of art."
