“caminos de la vida”

a new series of photographs called “caminos de la vida” (paths of life) inspired by the works of richard serra is online in my archive. this archive will soon be able to sell all my photographs for stock  and museum quality prints. i leave you today with a quote from peter lindbergh on the creativity within us…

“creativity is the basis of self-expression. Why are some people supposedly more creative than others, and why can’t others open themselves up enough to be able to express who they are? Creation is the birth of something, and something cannot come from nothing. When someone creates something: a painting, a poem, a photograph, the creativity comes from an idea, from a feeling, from emotion, or from a combination of ideas, feelings and emotions that are somehow ‘reborn’ from all our experiences and perspectives. Creativity is the desire to express ourselves. To formulate these expressions, we have to draw from our reservoir of experience, dreams, desires and experimentation and mix together what was, what is, and what could be… I don’t think you can learn it, it is rather something that evolves. Your perception of everything in your life fills up this reservoir. Some people are drawn to create and express themselves, others are drawn to reflect, to analyze. But in the end, they all could be creative if they had the desire to explore the way in which they are integrated in the world of their experiences. Because creativity is really a rebirth, a true tone we feel for ourselves and for our world. Then our work becomes a real part of who we are. Maybe all this is a question of how deep we are willing to go…”  by peter lindbergh


a quiet revolution part 2: kaua’i

i came across a collection of intimate and beautiful photographs from photographer john wehrheim from a series called taylor camp in kaua’i 1970’s from a group of people escaping the chaos of the vietnam war and i wanted to add them to my recent post of kaua’i, “a quiet revolution,” because i think it begins to explains the detachment that you feel in this place from the rest of the world and the connection between man and nature and how small we really are… and yet this is the end of a journey and the beginning of another…     ma-halo hawaii
