the pencil of nature:

I've been steadily photographing here since I moved into Aferro Studios in Newark in February.  I use the camera for a number of reasons.  As I work, I find that I'm constantly inventing (reinventing, I'm sure) ways to do things.  Sometimes in the middle of it I notice that I'm interested, in sort of a detached way, in how a process looks.  I try to record those views.  I also want to remember specific things that I did, and especially to recall ideas that emerged on the way to something else.  I take a lot of notes and make lots of little sketches, but photography is another way to keep an idea around.
