Just a few from a past life I have visited in the last couple weeks. TriX
Perhaps my most loved image from Willi Three Doors, all open many roads before me adventures unfolding. Whidbey Island Wa. Teach Photographic Philosophy. ArtSpace Norwich 2001 a studio a new mill town to wander and create. An Art community gallery shows many friends. A theater across the street, an award. Writing a column on Nikonians about seeing, using your camera not being used by your camera manual images made in your mind understanding of creative process.
The Balloon Festival an antique auto show. I see graphic studies of light be it an old car or a nude. “All anyone ever photographs is light the subject merely a vehicle to transform the light into emotion.” A mantra that I live by today. In the mid nineties as AI had griped the film camera industry Auto Everything. Still through my column, speaking to Photo Clubs tutoring Studio workshops in Norwich many embraced the idea of thinking.
Arnold cutting stone from “a lazy sculptor’s work.” There was never enough time to be sipping tea or working on a documentation. He gave me this piece created from my photo. “I’d rather work from Peter’s Photographs then a a live model.” He told Claudia laughing as only Arnold could. ” The models always talk too much and have to go pee” His images allow me to see the front, back, sides at the same time.” Trips to the Port of Galilee he would sketch, I’d make color photos his easel “you are much easier and fun then lugging all the paints. At home he would use my photos and his sketches to paint from.
When one door closes, two others open.
Love Arnold’s quote!
Peter J Crowley says
Arnold was a great friend I think of him often I can see like a sculptor. I wash I had taped his laugh. peace my friend
