Looking at life through nano-coated lenses

Today’s Women’s March was held in Albany’s West Capitol Park. Beyond the large number of people, it offered inspiring speakers and many great signs. It also benefited from some beautiful weather – somewhat miraculous given the winter we’ve been having. Here are some of my images 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.

A photo of mine from the 2012 UCI Tour of the Battenkill will be appearing in “Game Day,” an international sports photography exhibit in Minneapolis. Apparently this show is designed to tie in with the Super Bowl, which will be played next month in Minneapolis. I guess the judge liked an image of bike racers suffering on Meeting House Road… 🙂

At a recent show that included a couple of my gravestone photos from “As We Are Now,” some viewers apparently believed I had added the photo on a stone with Photoshop. I guess they didn’t know what’s been happening with some modern gravestones.

“Put Out To Greener Pastures” – Texas

A few years ago The Atlantic had an interesting article – “Lasers For The Dead” – about a new technology for modern gravestones. Drawing from a visit to a New York City cemetery, the article tells the interesting story of how new laser equipment enabled monument companies to embed photographs on gravestones. The article concludes with some thoughts on how this new technology reflects on our time and place:

Death doesn’t change. But that doesn’t mean that death escapes its time or culture. The older sections of Washington Cemetery have an identifiable style, too, Ciamaga said. The new stones are just the latest one. But if that’s true, then these stones say something about the times in which we now live and die.
