I direct films for a living and also produce art that barely makes a living but is more interesting to do. A few years ago my source of photographic inspiration was travel, but this has become impossible because of work. Now I am involved in life immediately around me; proximate, predictable, routine and I need look deeper for sources of inspiration… If you stop to look you will find – dozens of philosopher’s have uttered these words. Trying to respond to the underlying complexity and surprise revelations of life developing immediately around me at work, in subways or busses, museums or parking lots, or on a trip to my dentist as in the posted image, I ‘m challenged to cram as much immediate visual information into a single frame as possible. It is easier to do this directing movies - Godard said that film is the truth 24 times a second - alas, still photography is denied that option. Recently I’ve been using a cell-phone camera. Initially resistant to taking images with what is basically a toy scanner attached to a communication device, I began to notice it was always there when something happened - completely ubiquitous with resilient optics and finger-touch mobility. Now I’ve come to rely on it, and carry it everywhere. Occasionally I’ll even turn on the ringer and take a call but only when it doesn’t interfere with its primary function of being my pocket camera. ... There is much detail lost in transmission, the original is printed large at 30 X 44 and finished in encaustic medium. Final size 28 X 42
