What's Really Out There

October 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment


Things aren't always how they're seen.     

In my book, SIGHTED_The Records, there are two versions of the same shot. In one, several moons--or maybe I mean discs-- are clearly visible. In the other--thanks to the digital magic of gradient maps (do not ask me  to explain)--the moons disappear, subsumed in a bland expanse of blue. 

So, exactly what truth is out there?

I am an alien, a New Englander, raised with boutique spaces: hill here, field there. Now I am an emigre, a Westerner, zooming through a vast expanse. Who knew an orchard could be so big? Who knew a sky?

They say seeing is believing, but believing what? 

Stories are a kind of map. Making them makes sense of what we're passing by. Landscape speaks in a thousand voices. All of them are partly true. I'm looking. I'm listening. Let's drive.
