Sometimes it's about grabbing the camera and finding a little drama…won't save the world,…but will save the moment.

Blessed with a mild afternoon last Friday I got out for some work on the street but was able to line up only a few interesting images. This year I'm also collecting Fragments for use in the Kraft Paper Diaries, helps to fill those voids on the street.

Onward into February, arguably the longest month of the year. After last week’s road race and pitstops for the opening[s] of my Recent Work show in Mt Sterling, I’m back to flogging photobook concepts on the storyboard, completing this year’s first Kraft Paper Diary, and having borrowed seventeen frames from the house for the show…it’s a good time to repaint the living room.

Rather than being [a] participant in this year's annual Regional Photography show at the GRAC, I've been pressed into service as Solo Artist. Mounting a show provides a convenient diversion to my recent creative doldrums…at least something is being accomplished…though obliviously I know better. The concept for Books on the Wall [the photobook as an installation] and development of the Circular Sequence Structure have been slow to evolve, an unaccustomed difference to my wham bam, churn it out approach of the past few years.

Over the past year I've become very project oriented, however the Kraft Paper Diaries require random single images and I'm reminded to once again look for them. My initial interest was a couple of kitchen workers dressed in all whites that never materialized while I pretended to make this image in a downtown alley…looks a bit of old Europe.

Given the cold weather it's been a month since working on the street, so for practice I employed the stealth technique of conspicuously pointing the camera up to make an image [pretend or actual] then turn toward the subject while pretending to "chimp".

At eighteen pages maximum, the Kraft Paper Diaries are simple bindings of humble materials with the words and images presented en collage. While there is no time table for completion—some may record a passage of time with mid-stream stops to explore a discovered interest—or some may be of a single concept. As one tableau is resolved…another begins…though normal is to have several concurrent projects.
