Johnathon’s wife, Julie, initially struggled with him being so public with his story, and that’s why it was so meaningful to have her in the photographs. “The feeling was us ‘coming into our light together.’ There were dark clouds at the beginning of the shoot, but they parted just as the sun was setting. That’s when Dan captured the feeling of intimacy and support I treasure with Julie. Dan’s images reflect my journey, the progress I’ve made, and the power of my loving relationship with Jules.”
