About - graffiti goose photography

graffiti goose photography

Russian film director Andrei Tarkovsky described film-making as "sculpting with time." Photography takes on this ability. The galleries here are sculptures of moments arrested, framed and re-framed; they represent fragments of time: my past & your present  --or my past and my present. Various titles & themes come from literary works by e.e. cummings, Virginia Woolf, Jack Kerouac, and others (all of them tucked inside Proust -- although, they are subject to whimsically change due to unpredictable creative surges). 

I began taking photographs as a way to pull something creative and lasting out of daily walks; the routine event on the same path twice a day, always revealed something pure, haiku, whispered & new. As I sit at my kitchen table in France and write this, a friend sent me a quote that sums it up ..."Don't tell me the moon is shining, show me the glint of light on broken glass."

Anton Chekhov
