The sea has played an important roll in my life, inspiration drawn from the power of nature and the beauty of the ever changing visuals. In the 70’s it was Cosey Beach, the Spring of my photographic journey. Here in Galilee [2000’s] in late summer I had focused on humanity the working people, a community. First going there alone in the 1980s while working in Providence and Newport and all the creative nooks along the bay. Old roads revisited with old images. Perhaps a return visit to some of my favorite haunts with the hope that they will rekindle my spirit. Imaginary stories from the salt air of a hard yet rewarding life respecting the sea and the land putting back as much as you take as the sea allows. Hoping that Condomodians have not trashed the port of my beginnings. Old Roads, traveled once more………
Old Roads appear only on maps
Old Roads appear only in memory
Old Roads widened repaved
Old roads now impassible
Old roads will I travel them?
Old roads a final exploration, portfolio
Old roads a new found vision
Old roads meant to fade away.
