“The music is in effect telling us about a future existence in which love and cooperation have replaced strife and oppression. Once we have achieved a glimpse of that future state, our present mode of life becomes increasingly intolerable: who could be satisified with prison after having breathed the sweet air of true freedom?”
Frank Kofsky

Coltrane: The Story of a Sound

Wandering

n

These images were taken during a walk I took in fields near our house. In a way it was a new beginning because I had not wandered out with the camera in hand for a long time – I still don’t. I usually feel lost in the world with the camera in hand. This time I went out to challenge that concept.

This occured  shortly after an intense three month project with Shahar ended. I was carrying with me a question, which comes up often, about my relationship to the people and work I encounter when in Shahar’s bubble (which is where I have spent most of the last two years). My first impression is that I am some kind of a parasite. What can I do with the camera without other performers doing their work? What images would exist for me?

With this in mind I went for a walk. These images are technically extreme, they were taken in low-light conditions, in which I pushed the camera into extreme settings and then (shortly after I arrived home) used a heavy hand in post processing. I felt I was fighting something.
