Art, Six Feet Apart

Social distancing is tough. We don’t enjoy life as much when our universe shrinks. Our pool of interactive friends, family and co-workers decreases while our stress increases, creating an excruciating feedback which may amplify out of control.

As I thought about the negative connotation of the 6 foot social distancing exclusion, I tried to make something positive by symbolically making the 6 feet a measure of inclusion. In this gallery each image was made with the camera staying within the confines of a 6 foot radius (12 foot diameter) starting point. A ripe blackberry became the center of my circle. For 90 minutes, I stayed excluded/included within that circle. While my photographic universe may have diminished in size, I ended up seeing much more through this exercise. No camera is needed to sit and observe within our immediate space. As photographer Dorothea Lange observed, “A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera.”

For years, photography has been a spiritual exercise, a practice in which I can slow down, disconnect from every day pressures and rush of life, and simply observe. It is ironic and frustrating that with the extra pandemic time, where everything slows down, it seems much harder to disconnect from the stress and uncertainty. I’m … Read More about Scenes From an Art Studio

Destruction and Creation

“Destruction” and “Decay” may be other words for “Creation”, labels we use when our view is from too short a time frame or we are bound too close to the process. This urban lot is home to an abandoned church and houses, yet full of new life and vitality. You can see the entire gallery … Read More about Destruction and Creation
