photography and the landscape

Saturday, May 28, 2011


When I first became interested in the visual arts, there were a small handful of artists I admired. Chagall, Vermeer, Goya, Rouault , Pinkham Ryder and  Joseph Williamm Mallord Turner to name a few. This image, in a series of spliced photos, pays a tribute to Mr. Turner.  It is said that he had himself tied to the mast of a ship caught up in stormy seas so that he could see for himself the atmospheric affects of the wind, rain and tumultuous water. It is a great story and worthy of homage.
