Through a Glass, Darkly

Minnehaha Falls, 2003

Some memories remain crystal clear, photographic. Others become indistinct, a mess of conflicting impressions, dream-like. A picture of the event will often spur memories, even supplanting them. When the photograph itself is unclear it only confuses thing more. As photographic technology becomes cheaper and more precise, will all our pasts be indistinguishable from the present?

I can say that the older I get the more muddled time becomes. It used to flow like the water in a river. Now it's more like water in a big bucket.

I look so serious ;) I've been printing at National for a week and a half for Don and my mind has been going back to times past...
