Doris and Nancy - Encounter One
From the series 'Cafe Conversation'.
I'm interested how people interact with each other and how they communicate their thoughts and ideas. Conversations can be fascinating and the exchange can go in all sorts of directions. Some of this communication is with the other person and some with themselves. I would always attempt an open situation, rather than a closed one, to allow the viewer to participate should they wish to do so.
I use image and text to take the viewer somewhere else other than where they might have gone with either constituent part alone. My intention is not for the words to describe the photograph nor for the photograph to illustrate the words.
