Remnants in Sequoia National Park

"Cameras began duplicating the world at that moment when the human landscape started to undergo a vertiginous rate of change: while an untold number of forms of biological and social life are being destroyed in a brief span of time, a device is available to record what is disappearing." — Susan Sontag "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." — Marcel Proust "Parks and gardens are the quintessential intimate landscapes." People use them all the time, leaving their energy and...

Street Stains and Shadows

A visual metaphor on wandering, self expression, a life— and life’s “work in progress,” retraced footsteps, blurred escapes…Street stains and shadows— “I was a painter before, and it was always about the frame, of course. But within this frame (photography), somehow, because of movement, because of things passing through the frame, it seemed to have a life bigger than the actual frame itself.”— Steve Mcqueen Interview in Hunger, Criterion (2010).
