And It’s Time

“Well she said she’d stick around Until the bandages came off But these mamas boys just don’t know when to quit And Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams Or are those prayers?’ So just close your eyes, son And this won’t hurt a bit And it’s Time Time Time And it’s Time Time Time …

On Paper

 Like what you see up top? You should see it in person, in a frame, the way it was intended. We ingest a lot of our photography through a screen these days. It’s convenient for sure, but an altogether different experience from taking in an image when it comes in the form of a print. If …

Skeptical Optimism

Being a parent, more than anything else, is a constant reminder of just how paradoxical the world is. From the moment your child is born, you will receive multiple daily reminders of the Sisyphus-esque task of trying to establish order and reason in your life. Your will will be ground down languidly by the constant cleaning …

Here’s Looking at You

Can you see it, the smile that lights up a room, the worries, woes, and struggles weaving their way through her salt-and-pepper hair, her eyes whose lids bear a burden but whose irides keep the lids from completely collapsing?  A good photograph should tell a story, and the best ones do so without needing any …

Ramshackle Decoration

I live in a town where the current median sales price for a single family home is $905,500. Compare that with the national median sales price of $223,500 and you’d be hard pressed to imagine anything but ornate, opulent façades everywhere you turn. Then you get here and actually have a look around. Don’t get me …

Treat It Like It’s Sweet

Alarm clocks, toast the bread, something with the frypan, put on some clothes, droopy eyes and excuses why not, what’s the world doing, shuffle along, get there on time, phone calls about needing the this’es and the that’es, make coffee, email whoever about whatever and why or why not, doorbell, sign this, what time is …

An abandoned North Sea beach in the heart of winter at dusk, curled under a thick blanket with a good piece of fiction, a Chinaski dive bar with a whiskey on the rocks and someone willing to plumb the depths necessary to solve all the world’s problems. Although they may not sound like it, these …

Out of Bounds?

Love it, hate it, or shrug your shoulders in indifference to it, street photography is a thing, an amorphous thing that has rules just as subjective as any other art form that has progressed over time. Still, if you’ve been bitten by the street bug and have been shooting for awhile, what might have seemed …

15 Seconds of Change

Sadly, our basic perception is linear, and once change over time slows to a certain point, we can only truly see it when comparing our recollection of a thing to its current state. Oh how weird the world would look like our perceptions were nonlinear!

Boxed In

Ever get the feeling like you’re constantly getting boxed into one type of grid or another? Seems like no matter how you try, You can’t avoid it. Seems like the nature of things.
