Anthem

Artist Statement

Anthem, a collection of fine art photography, explores a small freshwater pond in Fortunes Rocks, Maine, from the first appearance of water lily leaves in the spring to flowers’ lush spread, to the approach of winter, when a few pads are transiently visible beneath a thin coating of ice.

Ranging from realistic to abstract compositions, these film and digital images, made during ten years spent on the pond, are offered, most simply, as a meditation.

I seek images that make me feel, notice, linger. And for me a remembrance – where I’ve been, where I’ve returned.

    I believe that the ceci weddell writing ” bordersong” is more than a question of identity, much more.
