The Work of Zina Nicole Lahr

From Stormy Pyeatte:
“In August 2013 my friend Zina asked if I could shoot a video for her portfolio. She needed something that would showcase her work but also tell a little bit about her personality and her interests. We had two days to shoot and edit so we shot an interview and smashed something together to meet our deadline. On November 20, 2013 Zina passed away due to a hiking accident in Ouray, CO. After the funeral I revisited the footage and made this short as an attempt to capture her personality and creativity. I never planned to release it online but now I have a chance to share her and her creations with all of you! For all who are part of the Zina Lahr love bomb, this is for you!”

Personal Note:
What does this video teach you about living your passion and being creative?

For me it reminds me:

> to be creative NOW.
> to live my passion NOW.
> it’s never too early or too late to make a difference.
