In my early thirties, I left a marketing position at Apple Computer to pursue a dream as a photojournalist at a local newspaper and 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 Instagram. This visual forum offered instant connections to like-minded photographers, 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.
