Nino Batista

It’s not a surprise, after all these years, that Nino Batista summarily dropped commercial photography to focus on what he simply has to do, has to make.  We can discuss his sense of contrition and ephemerality about his life another time, but to be sure, he is where he should have been long ago. Hardly a new journey, but now a focused one that will (and already has) cost him quite a lot, he views this all as his calling, his new will, replete with the integrity, the probity, and the sincerity that’s been dormant far too long.
