So, I recently collaborated with Peter Weltner on a book of his poetry.  Quite a few of the poems were born from images that I sent him to look at, and a few of my images were born from reading his poems.  The book includes 8 of my images. To make all of this, for me at least, wonderfully more personal, when I was an undergrad and a graduate student at San Francisco State University, I took many poetry classes with Peter (as well as a fantastic class on Faulkner and another on contemporary fiction).  To say the least, those years of poetry study have contributed profoundly to how I approach the images I take. With all of that in mind, this book means a lot to me, personally, because I got to collaborate with a person who has been a significant mentor in my life (and remains one).  The book is available for purchase via Amazon should you have any interest.  Your purchase will help fund Brickhouse Books, a non-profit publisher of poetry-- which I do believe is a noble cause ...

This is a very cool idea-- and I wish I had thought of it myself:  a series of questions answered by images.

I saw BB in concert a handful of times (one of my favorite shows was an evening with BB, Albert King and Bobby Blue Bland) ... each concert always a sound reminder that even though sadness and struggle is inevitable in this world, you can, with the right music, still dance to it ... thanks, sir. The thrill of your music will never be gone ...

This is an image that has meant a lot to me over the years, so much so that I have never shared it before.  I'm not quite sure why I am sharing it now, but here it is in all of its awkward, highly personal self consciousness.

+Stephen Cairns, to quote Sabina from Milan Kundera's novel, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, "On the surface, an intelligible lie; underneath, the unintelligible truth." That is my abstract way of explaining my abstract attraction to this image (and what it means to me ...).

"How Gollum Spent His Fall Vacation"

This image is from a series of photos in which I take a nostalgic and, hopefully, whimsical look back at the films, comics, and books that inspired my childhood through their exploration of worlds of the fantastical (Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, etc). See the whole series here-->
