I’m a photographic visual artist. It’s cool that photographers now have the tools other artists use. We no longer have to plagiarize a discovered moment. If we can imagine it we can now create it.

Once Upon A Hockey Player's Smile...

Does each new generation mug the leavings of its predecessor? It is an adolescent’s job to get kicked out of the nest, right? / Usually what happens is that the whipersnappers knock down a big piece of whatever their parents built.
