Sure the subject matter is close to heart and all. And one of it I don’t think is terrible. But really, I can’t stand these two photographs. Perhaps what I dislike the most about them is how they represent if not my greatest flaw when it comes to getting things done, then certainly one on the top–10 list; the tendency to postpone whatever it is I should be doing while waiting for some pieces of […]
..the squares are the ones from New Landscapes that resonate nowadays—long before that it was the squares from the square camera that,.. well—wanted to resonate but never quite got there. Still staring at old photographs. These from 2006, made with in partnership with the Voigtlander Perkeo II. Speaking of the Perkeo.
