“It’s like a tear in the hands of a western man…
He’ll tell you about salt and carbon and water.
But a tear to a Chinese man…
He’ll tell you about sadness and sorrow or the love of a man and a woman.”
– Ride the Tiger. Jefferson Starship
Perspective. The perch upon which you peer. It matters.
Photography for me has been seeking the beauty in the world around me and then the effort to capture it on a two dimension medium, mostly so I could remember it subsequently. It has been the endeavor to pull those things from out of the air and then to press them down under wax paper for a later reminiscence.
Photography for me is becoming an act of seeing what others do not. Of creating beauty where there may be none obvious.
This is the turning point upon which I now stand. A new perch.
Wish me luck.
