shooting photography, all is in the eye of the beholder. The choice
is forever mine to be the silent witness as well as an active participant
with all my subjects. I invite you to taste the journey that I experience
as an artist. The following pieces are examples of what lies around us,
in front of us and within us to observe and to cherish. It is within
our power of perception that makes each experience unique.
There is something infinitely powerful
about the first house. Our first measure of stability , of accomplishment
of comfort,of protection. There is something perfect about the four
walls that surround us. Four, the essence of perfect balance, the
four directions, four grandparents, four phases of the moon, the women
and man inside each man and inside each women. Four brings harmony. It
As the world is a room in which we
live, watching the four corners of our lives progress into some beautiful
story about ourselves. How we percieve our world is really no different
from the way we percieve our home. Each wall in every room tells
distinctfully a story about something dear to us. How we take care
of it determines our place in this world. Is the room full of furniture,
art, objects of our desires or what is dear to us? Does is reflect
our egos or does it reflect our hearts ? Look around and then look within.
The language of structure can be
so revealing. Is it a firm foundation ready to withstand all that awaits
ahead? Do the curves and lines of the design tell a hidden story? How is
that materials of concrete and brick, the very definition of firmness and
strength have suddenly taken on the attributes of suppleness and softness.Just
as the rules learned as children we once believed strict and inflexible,
gave us freedom and comfort, so too do this lines and angles can give us
the space and ease to do what we want everyday.
To Stay Or Go
There is that moment. That point
in time that all of us reach in our lives. And we have to ask ourselves,
is this enough? Is this where we want to be? Is this honestly
where we dreamed we would be? Are we able to hear this voice inside
sufacing again and again? And are we willing to answer? Has
our lives become so busy that we are running on empty? Or what appears
to be empty lives,ones that are really full and rich? We are all
on this journey together. We can help each other get to where we
want to go. It is our responsibility as uniquely creative individuals
to found out where that is.
The open door reflects what lays
within our grasps everyday. Opportunities, chances, blessings luck.
However it is defined, it is there for all of us, waiting. Waiting
for us to see it and reach for it. The colors and styles will change
reflecting our evolving growth, yet, if this door closes before we act,
there will be another, just around the corner, just a little longer, and
just a little ahead, waiting for us once again.
