It's been far, far too long since I wrote a post. Mostly very busy with projects, but also trying to decide if this is a worthwhile way to share ideas, thoughts and process.
I thought I would share though, because as I work I think about the community of artists that build on one another. Above all, I want to be speaking and listening and looking and sharing work - as a way to reflect on, comment on and put voice to ways we perceive.
This Walker Evans photograph is always with me- in my head, in my consciousness.
And, similarly, Lee Friedlander's Factory Valleys work sustains. The visual complexity of the organization of the space, mixes with a direct presentation of that form. In looking at these photographs I am reminded of my feet, planted on the ground.
So, in homage to Walker Evans and Lee Friedlander, and because I carry a lot of images around in my head, I recently made this photograph in South Roxanna, Illinois.
