Handle with Care…

“Do not lay flat”
Photography

Looking through the camera and finding a composition – a readymade – appear right before my eyes is still quite a thrill.  I like to sharpen my visual sense through photography.  Composing, framing, taking notice of those objects filled with potential – seeming to appear in the viewfinder, just waiting to be noticed. This visual hunt is a different task than drawing for me, both of which can sometimes be equally surprising…  The camera and the frame, the opportunity to layer visual information, are welcome constraints.   Drawing, when it comes from a similar understanding of constraint seems to be what I’m most interested in accomplishing.
