Here's the text of the about page from my upcoming book of photos, which seems easier than deciding what to say all over again:

A self-taught photographer living in New Orleans, Louisiana with roots in middle Tennessee, Kevin O'Mara keeps an eye out for evocative night skies and vibrant decay. He collects books, bones, icons, skulls, and tokens. When not out with his camera he's usually busy making papier-mache masks in preparation for parading the streets of New Orleans during carnival season.

    "First of all, komara is a Nolaite. Errr, Nolaian. He's is a person of New Orleans. I don't know what the proper term is, but komara would know. It's his *thing* to know. And to take photos. MAN... the photos this guy takes. He could show you a thing or two. About taking photos. And probably wine. And definitely bourbon. You know what I'm saying?

    He has turned the cities of New Orleans, Cookeville, and Magala into his own personal works of art. Who knew that kind of thing was allowed? I don't think he even asked -- he just went and did it."

    "An epicure of the first order, Kevin understands the finer points of everything from the subtle nuances of French cuisine to the soul-saving Waffle House. You would do well to pay attention, because he has much to teach you."

    "I've known Kevin for 15 years. He always cleans his plate. He kicks pigeons and calls it "tough love". Kevin raises a stink at the library if the braille books are starting to go flat. His date to the senior prom was a baby bird that had fallen out of its nest. Once a week Kevin asks each of his friends if he can help them move. In short, he's alright."
