Time - Water - Earth, Intro

Time ∙ Water ∙ Earth

“....the distinction between the past, the present
and the future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion”
Albert Einstein

Time becomes evident through motion.
Sunrise, sunset, the changing seasons,
the movement of the celestial bodies,
being born, growing old, reclamation.
All are indicative of continuous change.

Millennia will pass.

Water will course, freeze, evaporate and move.

Earth will shift, become supple, shape herself and yield to change.

These intimate black and white images of frozen water and desert sand
show us the beauty of sameness in such opposites.

They help us to see more clearly how the earth holds
the memory of change allowing us to bear witness to our past
and the prepossessing harshness that is the cycle of time made visible.

In August 2013 I was one of a two person photography exhibit at the Johnson Heritage Post in Grand Marais Minnesota, titled 'Visual Stories'.  The previous passage, written by my wife Carolyn, puts into words the visual story that I will be sharing over the days ahead.
