Me

Anthony DeSanto (b.1996) was born in Hartford, Connecticut and grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida. He received his Studio Art BFA from the University of Central Florida, with a focus on photography. 
He enjoys music, sleeping in, and having a slice of pizza with his friends.
My Work
Mother Nature is asleep, as you should be.
Isn’t she graceful in the night?
Isn’t she vulnerable?
The way her sequin leaves dance under the stars?
____________________________________
By the night, I was thoughtless... But I was full of action as
The rules of the day didn’t apply like
they would in a few hours.
I uncovered more time, hidden away in the dark. And
I saved some for you… so go ahead.
 Lay your head, dream a message to the heavens.
The roads aren’t busy like they are during rush hour.
Too tired to talk, but up to sleepwalk,
You can cry all you want,  because my eyes are kept shut.
To do the deeds you need to,
You may ignore the signs tonight.
You can follow your dreams, or
You may see them in your sleep.
