Everyone knows the monuments and the places where you take folks visiting from another place. But what about the everyday--the places and paths that make up the fabric of our daily lives? The routine and ordinary becomes lost to our curiosity through sheer familiarity. We don’t really miss the old municipal building as much we miss the diner that was on the corner, often not even being conscious of it until it’s gone. There are also the moments of tranquility and casually glimpsed sights that stay with us, that invoke a memory of a moment long ago, a fleeting emotion or even a slight scent on the breeze.
Photography long ago took on the burden of exact depiction and realism, freeing the painter to explore varying perspectives and compositions that wouldn’t exist except on the canvas.
