this is one of my favorite pictures. it’s possibly the most optimistic of this series.
Cervantes, Western Australia. Winter, 2012.
i have hesitated to show anybody this picture for several years because i myself didn’t know how to see it properly. i’m still not entirely comfortable articulating my feelings about this picture, but i’m confident that it’s presented here with enough context to be seen correctly, within tolerances acceptable to me.
let’s just say that this photograph is as much a eulogy as i can make it.
it’s part of a series of photos (hopefully enough for a small book) i have been collecting and editing for about 4 years.
