Occasional Ramblings with a Camera

This blog is my occasional ramblings on here, there and about, with and very occasionally without a camera. Photography, art, landscape (principally Scottish), heritage and wildlife are the things that interest me the most, so thats what I'll be writing about and of course showing pictures of. They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words, well I'm not so sure about that but if it is then great as it will save me a heap of typing, all power to the image.

Stephen Shore


I've just found this really interesting YouTube video of Stephen Shore talking about his work at the Museum of Modern Art (New York). Where he has a retrospective exhibition.
Shore very much speaks my language but in a rather more articulate way it has to be said:), especially here when discussing his particular way of looking at, and of seeing (for him) the Montana landscape. For me a Scottish moorland landscape. A landscape largely devoid of elements to help frame or formalise. Though in a way here he is talking about subtle pictorial perspective.
I love his phrase 'resonance of constant attention' and 'seeing with constant attention'.
My Folds images are possibly the closest I've come to this awareness, their subtlety requires for me and I hope the viewer a visual awareness and resonance.

There are several other videos relating to this exhibition that are also worth viewing.
