I live in Burlington, Vermont, in the USA. I don’t fear losing stuff, but am afraid of forgetting something that has caught my eye. As I age, it gets harder to hold onto those images with memory. The camera is my tool for hoarding what I see.
I take pictures of what I wish to savor with a second look, and then a third. Everything goes by too quickly, but the camera allows me to linger. I am not looking to show enormous splendor, profound truth or emotional depth. Rather, I want to hold onto that which puzzles, evokes mystery, and raises questions.
