Looking at life through nano-coated lenses

Across the United States today there were hundreds of rallies opposing the Trump administration’s dreadful and unpopular immigration policies. The name of many of these rallies – “Families Belong Together” – drew particular attention to the egregious Trump policy of separating children from their parents. These photos are from the Albany, NY rally, in which hundreds braved the oppressive heat and humidity to voice their opposition to Donald Trump and his terrible policies. Beyond the creative signs and inspiring speeches, one message stood out: people need to register to vote, and then to vote in November.

Albany’s West Capital Park hosted the second annual March For Science today. While the weather and wildly various forecasts may have put a dent in attendance numbers this year, at least we didn’t have any sleet or freezing rain. For those who did attend, there were many booths with fun science displays, creative and entertaining signs, and stirring speeches by some local scientists and officials. Here are some photos from the day.

I continued to work on this project in 2017; this is a collection of some of my favorite images from the year. They were taken in upstate New York and Texas. You can find more images from this series on the As We Are Now series page.

I am drawn to windows, doors, and other objects that define a boundary between what’s on one side of them and what’s on the other. We instinctively tend to respect such boundaries, finding distinctions between each of the two sides. For example, we break up structures into “interior” and “exterior” facets, each with their own distinct natures. By the same token, in our daily lives we tend to break up existence into the inner world of our psyche and what surrounds us “out there,” separate and apart from us.

However, these distinctions are products of our minds. In reality everything is interrelated, and how we see one side is inextricably related to and influenced by how we see the other. Sometimes we have the opportunity to perceive an aspect of this interconnectedness. My goal in this project is to discover and share these opportunities.
