Simply respecting and celebrating life … in all its magnificent diversity … is nowadays the truly radical act of any artist.

It is no accident that one of the most significant ways of revitalizing the spirit and reconnecting with our deeper senses & more worthy selves is found in communion with nature and life itself … and in our power to imagine.

There is much that is wondrous to behold, value, defend and gain strength from.

  • Thanks Matt, unfortunately a portion of the images I was hoping to use didn’t quite pass the pixel density quota!

    Fabulous photos…even the very first one of yours I ever saw.

  • You are always very kind. Thought it was about time I pulled a selection together. See from your writings that you are getting just as much a kick out of RB as I am.
