Lascaux Nouveau

PHOTOGRAPHER’S JOURNAL: If “Style is the outer form of spirit,” as a good friend once told me, and if what is true of an individual’s “style” is also true of a community’s style, a nation’s style or the style of a whole civilization, then...

1. What art speaks for our own time, 2019 America?
2. What does it tell us about our spirit?  …about National character?

I invite anyone to suggest answers in the hope that art can get around partisan politics. What is the art that most represents who we are? What does it tell us about ourselves?

NOTE: We are still seeking new audiences for our slide-talk and book signing for the 2019 season. We’ve done more than 80 of these in the last 3 years. The coming seasons will take us to Bethel, Granby and Fairfield, but if we haven’t been to your community, we still have dates available.  Help us out by passing word of our talk to places where we might be welcomed, or send us a contact name and we will follow through.

Auld Lang Syne
