The Quality of Absence : Roadside Motel : Connecticut

jezclampmotelct

The quality of absence.

I rarely dream of my brother as he was. But i often feel his absence. No, I always feel his absence.

Israel rains attacks on Gaza. Well Hamas rains rockets on Israel too…………

It is the climax to the marching season in Northern Ireland.

I am in Atlanta.

I sat up in bed and wrote this. Maybe I should sleep more. Maybe I should turn off the drone of the news as I sleep.

I hear this news. I feel the quality of absence through the tunnel of years.

Cheers Jez X

  • Memories can be in the mind, or recorded by a camera… we are in the business of capturing memories today, for others to use in the years to come…

  • Ours is a special super power Paul …….. The art of making people in frozen moments of time completely immortal ………..Those fragments of time exist in negative form and as more malleable memories in my head….

    But both my negative file and my head allows too much disorganization.

    Memories and frozen moments in time do not stay in a chronological order they come forward seemingly at random to push onto the perception and landscape of now.

    Hey photography…… it can be a dogs life as my father would say……. But Don’t get me wrong bro…… who would want an ordinary job…… an ordinary life….. when u can have the life of an admittedly knackered out mere mortal ……… but a life wielding this mighty super power hehehehe :-))))))))))))))

    Cheers Bro Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
