I follow and forage. Breathe, smell and listen to the botany, the people and the geography that is my environment. Small footprints abound. I might stop for the fragile bones of a bird’s fallen egg shell or a wild edible poking up through a bed of pine needles. I’m not in a hurry, nor will I linger. I’m just following breadcrumbs.
In my early thirties, I left a marketing position at Apple Computer to pursue a dream as a photojournalist at a local newspaper and returned to school to study photojournalism.
I quickly launched Yvonne Cornell Photography to pursue commercial and editorial work. Despite a beloved clientele, the art of personal storytelling eluded me until the introduction of the simple & sublime mobile photo-sharing app called Instagram. Suddenly, a visual forum existed with instant connections to like-minded artisans and handcrafters. It opened up all kinds of new discoveries and connections.

My Dream Job: A 19th-century naturalist & explorer with 21st-century technology.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
