Photography changed everything, from the way graphics and type were applied, to the visual appearance of the printed page. The awful realities of the civil war were brought graphically to the masses and thus may have changed history. It has been invaluable as a historical record and also used in the photographic interview. It became a documentary and communications tool in the exploration of the American west. Eadweard Muybriges’ battery of cameras captured movement in time and space and led the development of motion-picture photography.
I am designing a book cover for the next great thriller from Jennette Gudgel.
As my expectations ebb and flow,
I create then dismantle another reality.
More than likely not healthy
to spend so much time in the sensual.
Walking with a memory of you
under my umbrella
to the bus.
Eating a breakfast sandwich
in the rain.
I stopped to argue my case
but you were not there.
