Textures - things. These have had an allure for me all my photographic life. Things. They can be merely inanimate to most, but - like extraordinary films - make a larger-than-life imprimatur on me, dramatically announcing to me their self-evident majesty. That which gets overlooked, discarded or dismissed has an intense call of yearning I can never ignore, because they are a visceral input to my emotional antenna, my comfort zone. We seek each other out.
