You don’t need to leave your room.
Remain sitting at your table and listen.
Don’t even listen, simply wait. . . .
The world will freely offer itself to you . . .
It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
No. 109, “The Zürau Aphorisms”
With my print “Canaries” at the opening reception of the 35th Annual Juried Membership Exhibition, Houston Center for Photography, July 14, 2017. In my artist’s talk, I quoted the above lines from Franz Kafka to emphasize that photographers can often find wonderful subjects within arm’s reach, as I did with sticky notes.
