My Scholarship entry - Finding Silence in India

India | Tuesday, November 18, 2014 | 5 photos

Infectiously curious, resilient, ambitious, colorfully tolerant and passionately stubborn. I am Tarynne Mingione. Once I settled into a career as a dietitian, a serious relationship and played housewife. I quickly admitted I wanted the opposite. I wanted to revisit a burning desire to play, to explore. Like a child. To experiment, laugh that contagious unguarded laughter, learn, unlearn, get a few scars, make embarrassing mistakes, work on humility and reshape reality. So I did. A oneway ticket enabled me to start a serious relationship with my camera. My appropriately named Rebel covered every inch I did as I made my trip around the world. I loved her company and the constantly renewed enthusiasm each time I picked her up. My images transformed over those 17 months using the world as my classroom.
Why me? Because I will recycle that rejuvenating enthusiasm into this project. I genuinely believe that borrowing such a talented photo journalist such as Jason Edwards provides the opportunity to do exactly what this scholarship can- manicure that powerful childlike curiosity and creativity into a mature, refined photographer that can be introduced to the professional world.
