On my way….I am on a trip I’ve been trying to make for 33 years – back to Argentina where I spent my childhood and youth; where I first became enamored with photography. Its a place where I discovered I had an affinity for making images – hundreds of hours spent in darkrooms watching blank paper dissolve magically into photographs – finding success in something I felt a passion for. This trip is about understanding my past, the cultures I’ve crossed over, and the foundation the perspectives that I have today.
I am going to use photography to re-encounter Argentina and to interpret my experience. For a while, this blog will serve as a space where I can explore, and perhaps get responses on, the role of photography in helping us come to terms with life events and experiences.
I am not planning on making yet another travelogue here, (that is what Facebook is for!), rather my intent will be to reflect on how making photographs helps us come to new understandings and what it is about the process of making and working with images that is meaningful.
