I’ve been a “Southern” photographer for about 55 years (if one includes Brownie and Instamatic camera use!) I feel as though I’m beginning to meld with the landscapes in and around Athens, learning to be embraced by solitude and light and biting insects amidst the subtle, everyday changes in both the literal earthly landscapes- and the  landscapes within myself: both of which I’ve ultimately come to realize are exponentially and equally profound. I bring up old photo files from different times in my life that remind me of the color and terrain of those personal landscapes which continue to remind me of the person I still might be/am becoming, and what I absorb visually what the world has to offer. Still practicing, still learning, still surprised every single day.
