San Blas (which San Blas I don’t know) c. 1970.
People building a boat. I think the San Blas Islands of Panama, but I could be way wrong about this.

I haven’t posted in a while. I just got a whole bunch of slide boxes. There’s probably a good couple of hundred to paw through. Should be fun.

c. I don’t know when… or where. Most likely New Hampshire.
Heh. This is a photo of my uncle taken by my father. I imagine it was roughly around the time my uncle received his commission. I’ll bug the young lieutenant about the details next time I’m home, hehe. Must have been around the time my father was still in highschool.
I’ll clarify date and place when I can talk to my family.

Peru, c. 1970.
This is the photograph that means photography to me. There is a large print of this hanging in the hallway in the family home. We’ve moved a few times, but it’s always been hung. For a few years, it hung on the wall in my apartment during my undergraduate.
I’ve spent over 30 years looking at this photo. I know that woman’s hands as well as anything else in my life. The shape of her rings. The texture and dried green color of the coca leaves.
The influence on my own work is obvious. I can’t get close enough to hands. The only thing more expressive about a person is their eyes. I am always looking for this shot.
