My name is Roy Ciofalo. When I'm not behind the lens, I'm putting out fires on behalf of New York's bravest. My fascination with photography started when my daughter was born. It was so unbelievable to have this little life in my hands and I wanted to capture every moment as she grew, to record her story as it unfolded. I'm not a writer by any stretch of the imagination but I don't think that of 'a picture is worth a thousand words' as just an old adage. Images communicate emotion, freezing a reality in time and saving the present, so that you can savor it in the future..
