020217: A Moment of Calm

Devonian Drawer 13

News of the day, just about every day, seems to be so unsettling. Sometimes it’s a real challenge to find an offset.

I think I found one, thanks to a trip through my photo libraries.

The images I present today are part of a series I worked on and exhibited 5 – 6 years ago.

Entitled the “Devonian Drawer” series, it was a quiet, almost meditative series of images in which my locally found fossils were partnered with various other objects and framed in an old metal drawer.

The relationship of objects within each frame gives much room to interpretation.

And perhaps that room for interpretation gives way to an inner quiet.

Nothing grandiose here – just a quiet moment, a pause to catch my breath in the midst of frenzy.

I hope you enjoy the selection.
