“We are a social people, creating remarkably creative communities around our passions, our pursuits, our play.
The breadth, depth, and enthusiasm in these varied communities have captured my eye, held my heart, taken my breath away, left me amazed and sometimes puzzled and amused by what we humans do. My contribution is to share the life in these moments, when the human interactions of joy, beauty, and companionship lift us up. We thrive when 1+1 = 3.”
As the creator of smartly-captioned photos and photo essays that grab the eye and hold the heart of your attention-challenged audience, Debra Fisher Goldstein celebrates the rich communities that we, as social beings, create.
Prior to her photography and writing work, Debra spent 20+ enjoyable years helping businesses and organizations with their marketing communications and branding strategies, with a specialty in
“Headlines, taglines, copy lines that are short and to the point, just like me.”
Debra knows how to tell a micro-short story that is highly visual and quickly viral, with easy-to-share web and social media applications.
