System of Lines and Shadows
by Jay Waters
"The world around us is filled with drama, with beauty, with stories. Yet even a trillion cameras often fail to capture most of it, because we all pay so little attention to our surroundings. Instead, those cameras are used to tell the story of I’m--what I’m doing, who I’m with, where I’m at. The photos in this collection are examples of what we can accomplish if we just look. Great photos are just the coincidence of life and light and whatever camera you have available—and the willingness to see something other than I’m. There’s enough good out there that you don’t have to invent something new if you are simply paying attention."
Forest Hanging from Inflection Point
by Daniel Nemo
Light slings low between detached dimensions
in the forest hanging from inflection points.
The wind makes for it a shell-shaped labyrinth,
paths among nodes in a network
where photons sweep retina receptors,
echoes travel by a sort of revolution.
Lawless aerial structures lie bare
there in the trueness of physical time
as if darkened by fallout: past and future seem
dark miniature corridors running at each other.
Nothing to hold them in place except stories,
narratives comprised of projection & distortion--
yours-meets-theirs: the world.
