Art Is The Vehicle To The Cosmos

Art Is The Vehicle To The Cosmos

"Art Is The Vehicle To The Cosmos!"

This profound statement was pronounced on the 5th weekend by the course leader in a 5-month course about humanity (called The Wisdom Course) in which I participated several years ago in New York/New Jersey.

For me, and my relationship with photography, the camera has been a "tool of accessing intimacy" with myself and my world. Things I never knew!
It all began on that first day with an old Pentax camera. Central Park 1970. I have been a photographer ever since.

This photograph was taken in 1988 in Nigeria during a commissioned assignment by a large corporation. They were interested in my documenting their philanthropic contributions to several nations in West Africa. The ease of intimacy of this picture-experience with this young mother gave me a wonderful insight into myself. The photograph was taken at close range (only a few feet). That close intimacy opened a door to my seeing and experiencing humanity in a different, enlightend way which impacted my picture-taking from that point on.

How has "Art is The Vehicle to The Cosmos" impacted your life?
