Quote of the Day

October 25, 2009

I see my photographs as

meditations, it is as simple 

as that. To be understood,

they must be experienced––

felt, seen, known. Consequently,

I often use the medium of the

landscape, for everyone, in some

small way, has some very personal

relation to the land––thus they are

ready (and willing) to come in

 

to look, if not into, at least at the landscapes I produce. I have

trapped them then!

 

For if l have made the concept of the photographs strong enough,

the viewer will begin to still himself for, indeed, I make Still

photographs — and with the coming stillness comes the

possibility of a deep meditational understanding and seeing.

 

And seeing leads to Vision. And my photographs are there

mainly as pointers, indications, of a vision of possibilities

where stillness and silence abound — and where Light is

understood to be a substantial reality.

 

My photographs are my greatest teachers. It is my hope

that they offer a moment of pleasure to my viewers —

and perhaps a tiny hit of (mutual?) understanding …

but, as always, I have no expectations.

I’m paid to be lucky

and that means

making your own luck –

getting yourself

in the right position,

in front of the right subject

at the right time,

and in the right light.
