What we remember from childhood we remember forever - permanent ghosts, stamped, inked, imprinted, eternally seen.

A single person is missing for you, and the whole world of empty. But one no longer has the right to say so aloud. -Phillipe Aries

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started 
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for 
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea. -TS Eliot #quotes #tseliot #cemetery #pottersfield #mystery #blackandwhitephoto #contemporaryphotography #documentaryphotography #fujixpro2

The contemplation of nature has two correlative aspects. First, it means appreciating the “thusness” or “thisness” of particular things, persons and moments. We are to see each stone, each leaf, each blade of grass, each frog, each human face, for what it truly is, in all the distinctness and intensity of its specific being. As the prophet Zechariah warns us, we are not to “despise the day of small things” (4:10). “True mysticism”, says Olivier Clément, “is to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary.

We live, in fact, in a world starved for solitude, silence, and private: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship. -CS Lewis ***
I know it’s not much but that brick sunken in the ground is someone unknown to me is their gravesite. 
#quotes #cslewis #cemetery #blackandwhitephoto #contemporaryphotography #death #grave #southern #arkansas
I didn’t know then and I don’t know now who or what creates this invisible world, but I do know that it can be entirely visible. I become convinced that when we die, the physical body dies, but its energy doesn’t disappear— it just takes different forms. I came to believe in the idea of parallel realities. I think that the reality we see now is a certain frequency, and that we’re all on the same frequency, so we’re visible to each other, but that it’s possible to change frequencies. To enter a different reality, And I think that there are hundreds of these realities. -Marina Abramovic #quotes #marinaabramovic #invisibleworld #landscapephotography #dogsofinstagram #westforkarkansas #blackandwhitephoto #blackgermanshepherd #southern #trees #contemporaryphotography #fujixpro2 #tea_journals

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd—The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are. -Fernando Pessoa #quotes #fernandopessoa #cemetery #ozarkarkansas #arkansas #landscapephotography #blackandwhitephoto #solitude #emptiness #contemporaryphotography #southern #fujixpro2 #pilotgrove

But we are alone, darling child, terribly, isolated each from the other; so fierce is the world's ridicule we cannot speak or show our tenderness; for us, death is stronger than life, it pulls like a wind through the dark, all our cries burlesqued in joyless laughter; and with the garbage of loneliness stuffed down us until our guts burst bleeding green, we go screaming round the world, dying in our rented rooms, nightmare hotels, eternal homes of the transient heart.
― Truman Capote

before men could speak they enjoyed confounding another with signs
they enjoyed this as much as a mirror enjoys an image
as much as the evening like a ship enjoys a sapphire grave -Frank Stanford #quotes #frankstanford #blackandwhitephoto #contemporaryphotography #forest #woods #trees #quiet #iphoneography #iphone8

The things we want are transformative, and we don’t know or only think we know what is on the other side of that transformation. Love, wisdom, grace, inspiration—how do you go about finding these things that are in some ways about extending the boundaries of the self into unknown territory, about becoming someone else? -Rebeca Solnit #quotes #rebecasolnit #fieldguidetogettinglost #blackandwhitephoto #iphone8 #iphonography #signs

On July 10, 17, 24, 31 and August 7 I will be at @albrechtkemper teaching a workshop assisting students in developing their personal voice through photography, writing, and bookmaking.  This workshop guides students through a photography project that is focused on personal observation; tying together narrative, metaphor, and memory. Students may create images that are staged or found. Emphasis will be placed on the development of a concept and defining a visual style. The course will be broken into units including:

Concept Development
Visual style
Photography with writing
Choosing images and sequencing
Book layout & design
Final review

Supplies: Students may use any camera they have available to them, students will need the ability to print their images, and obtain bookmaking supplies as it pertains to each individual project.
Cost: $195.00/person (link in profile)
