My Life in Words and Pictures
A journey with photography and the written word . . .
“SILENTLY AND LIGHT OF FOOT” has been awarded several awards but "Juror's Choice" from Lorraine Sullivan at the Cambridge Art Center was one of the most special!
“SILENTLY AND LIGHT OF FOOT”
Such are the ways of things with dance and light.
A leap of faith, weightlessly, light on ones feet into the unknown.
“SILENTLY AND LIGHT OF FOOT” is a piece created from used but beloved pointe shoes from the Island Moving Company ballet dancers of Newport, RI and a pre-civil war era shoe rack from one of Natick’s oldest mills. The marriage of the two beautiful objects reflect a subtle story of light of foot from times that were, time that is and time that will be.
"Photography is simply a function of noticing things."
My photographs are an attempt to understand the process of creation. They represent a pilgrimage seeking answers to which the questions as well as the answers are wordless. I regard photography not just as a way of seeing but as a way of living, a search or a journey worth making.
