Going through old slides from the 1980s, I am struck by my periods of inaction, that is to say in some years I exposed less than four rolls of film. That seems unbearable now when I feel that i must expose and make pictures nearly everyday. When I don't I begin to feel like that I have nothing more to discover. After a few days of no exposures, I suddenly find myself looking and finding subjects in everyday things I pass everyday-a new framing or perspective. As if these exposures were lying in wait for me to come around to seeing them as they have always been for the first time. The artist is always playing catchup with the first creator-GOD.
