THE STORY OF "ECHO"
The wild and wonderful world on the other side of the window is stunned into calm deference by the cold’s frosty bite. The air’s chill may be ever so distinct, but this vague and untouched landscape is lovely nonetheless. One storm and then the next has made these trees grow roots that reach that much deeper. Here, life is slow.
Photographic art has the ability to transform an ordinary moment into one carrying magnified meaning. So here is a stand of snow-covered evergreens, and there is a child-like glance into the spectacle of dreams that is a snow globe. In those dreams, who does not see days spent with those we care about, in a wooden cabin, somewhere far away from everything but the snow falling outside the window, while the crackling fire and the love of our next akin is the ultimate source of comfort?
Look out the window, into the depths of the forest, and what you might see if only you allow yourself is another world, one that is shaped by not much but the volume of your dreams.
