In 1998 I made my first cross country train trip. My daughter took me to Pikes Place and her favorite music store which is very visual. Hope it is still there. Image made here is from a transparency and available as a Giclee print. This week only $79.50 tax included printed full frame on 8 x 10 photo paper. Also The Providence Door and Red Stripe and Roller Blades. Priority mail included add $20 for Fedx. If you want a print send an email and put a check in the mail. enjoy pjc
In the early 80’s and in love I moved to Providence, while there I worked at RISD and Brown. One day meeting a friend who worked in RISD’s publications office for lunch I continued my life long series of doors. Posing Kate in the doorway and myself directly in front the series Layered life began. As we walked on to lunch Kate mentioned that the door was to Harry Callahan’s home. Thirty years later I still seek open doors and the humanity that lies within and I continue to ponder and reflect with compassion, in the view finder, my soul exposed in every subject.
You may look at lots of images but back in the pre artifiscal age and today still for me the decisive moment was not taken 1000 exposures per image to later photo shop and find your idea. Creativity came from within the viewfinder, the rectangle the mind. The little nuance of the two of us reflecting in the door knob were not a “happy accident” it was composition, creation. It was/is mine.
Photographic Art more doors, under Harry’s and here. Are the doors still open?
