Instagrams can be sketches, a visual journal - measurements of light, reminders of favorite corners. The debate about digital vs analog can go on for some time, resolving nothing. Cameras are simply tools, and like a good spatula they can help make a fine omelette.

 

Notebooks are private affairs, and at the same time can be quite fascinating for a stranger to flip through. By taking instinctual pictures we create a list about what is important to us. A walk home from the market can offer a private masterpiece. I find inspiration in the mundane and the challenge of elevating it, polishing the raw stone with time and meditation, returning to the same places - kitchen tables, my daughter's smile, train stations, smokestacks.

 

Sketches keep us from forgetting the details.
