Concerning 2 Photographs in Our Entryway

You have to think of them as totems.
Sooner or later it will grow out of the ground
and go up through your body and out the frame
          of the picture,
as it pulls you into it and diagonalizes your
          straight and narrow ways
Roots, rocks pull you down, grasses cover
light bounces through you and shadows lace you
trunks boldly force you into strength you
          didn’t know you had
the myriad branches, light and dark
     gather conversations from the air
sounds enliven as a trenchant piece of nature
stands as your guide, grounds you in chorus
gives you rooting in reality of living eyes
that caught what you missed –
you gain as a gift a power to back you up
when strength is missed.

Lenore’s photographs extract from space what is truly there at the time. What other eyes miss she captures in all its depth, contrast, interrelationship and beauty. A photograph by Lenore can be a totem for anyone who observes it, a secret connection revealed as intimate and public as all great art.
Some will be up for this show in Ancon, New Mexico, which to us is a joyous event!

  1. Jody Isaacson sez I must look you up. So here I am at PCL looking at Lenore’s beautiful and moving photographs and reading/looking through three of Larry’s books staff retrieved for me.
