Scott Hussey has worked in the photography industry for over 20 years.

His approach to photographing his subjects is best summarized by Aristotle: "The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."


"A splendid journey of pain and passion, light, discovery and flight, beautifully told in poetic and photographic imagery."

  • DAVID WOOD, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of What Have We Done and Beyond the Battlefield

"Casey offers us a new transformative experience in Raw Thoughts. Each amazing photo-poetic construct is not just a set of images and words, but a therapeutic medium that touches the depths and heights of the human experience."

  • JASON Z. W. POWERS, MD, MAPP, author of When The Servant Becomes The Master and Positive Recovery Daily Guide

"Raw Thoughts takes the reader on an introspective and mindful journey of growth and redemption. Through poignant images and beautiful poetry, John Casey offers his readers a new approach to mindfulness, self-reflection, and spirituality."

  • JANNELL MACAULLAY, PhD, Lt Col USAF (Retired), Human Performance & Mindfulness Specialist

"In Raw Thoughts, John Casey gives us a glimpse into the heart and mind, melding both in a search for hope. His poems furnish the words, and the photography of Scott Hussey shows us the magic of the combination. Together, the poem-photo fusion delivers an ethereal duet of meaning worth exploring."

  • SHERYL NELMS, author of 21 published collections of poetry and four-time Pushcart Prize nominee
