After an 18 month wait, my Amazon pre-ordered copy of “Labyrinths" Josef Sudek arrived. While there are to many images of crumpled paper, foil, and cellophane for my taste…a few stimulated me…really all you can ask from a book. The text is informative as it explores the “labyrinth” in contrast to the “still life”, inviting me to discover a new visual language. For me a still life is a visual meditation, perhaps a labyrinth provides the chant. In the recent past, a few images I have presented on this page feature an object in the context of place. I find those images challenging and will devote more effort to them.

edit: Labyrinths is my least favorite Sudek book. As a recent student of his work, it serves to complete the final chapter of an aging photographer whose world was crumpling around him. For the more casual interest, “Poet of Prague” would be a better choice.

August afternoon - Salt River
Water sandals are my favorite piece of summer gear. Katy and I waded about a mile of this river…images were scarce…some dumb ass forgot his circular polarizer.
