Publisher's Description
“2 solitudes” presents a landscape of
hardwood forests and rock walls as photographed from my car,
suggesting the compression of space, time and memory.
even as “inner voice” has summoned stillness and silence,
a dominant impulse signals toward a search beyond for level
ground and a place of belonging; a beauty which knows the horizon

from “a field guide to getting lost”, rebecca solnit writes:
“how will you go about finding that thing
the nature of which is totally unknown to you?
suspended in the beautiful solitude of an open road,
when the blue is deepest on the horizon
a joy close to pain.
every love has its landscape,
as a place possesses you in its absence,
takes on another life as sense of place,
a faraway deep inside”.

“2 solitudes” is intended as an expression
of deep gratitude to my dear friend jemma craig and
her husband and son; patrick and rowan driscoll.
I wished to make for them, a gathering of pictures which
might be considered beautiful, generous and enduring;
a quiet offering in return for their gracious and expansive
giving. and, finally, to share it with you; dear family, patron, friend.
