america

America … a pantheon of paradox, enigma and illusion.
A modern mosaic of migrant cultures.
Not one place, but many places … many Americas.
So easily judged, so easily stereotyped, yet anything but simple
to really know.
Beyond the damaging excesses of power, greed and waste, nonetheless
a truly contemporary & vibrant place of often underrated ritual
and overlooked virtue and pleasure.
In amongst the myth and mania (and for better or for worse), a country with the knack of generating highly seductive cultural icons that … surprisingly to the first time visitor … can prove to be as real as they are imaginary.

(Behind every image of America lies a story, and this calendar hopefully pays tribute to at least a few.)

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.
