The eternal dynamic between The Light and The Darkness gives us photography in its original form. What plays out in black and white is supple and ingenious given its limits. It is the metaphor for being. The life force, the death force. One is either a cynic or has faith. The cynic sees the darkness growing; those of faith celebrate the light of a single candle. I have known many who only believe that the darkness will win. They carry it in their very beings. They find evidence of it everywhere and of course attract those experiences to them. Those of faith, and here I don’t mean religious faith but faith in the good, the beautiful, the positive, see it differently. How we choose to make our own reality is the story of our lives.
