About the Book
This book is a visual meditation on one of nature’s basic patterns: perceived order.
The images collected here were all captured partly with a physicist’s "eye" for objective order as a manifestly physical property of nature; and partly with an artist's appreciation of subjective order, whose meaning is local and intensely personal.
I hope that this book can also serve as a palimpsest of the author’s, and reader’s, process of self discovery: as elements of order are quietly revealed.
27 of the 84 photographs in this book were exhibited in a solo show at the Books & Books art/book store, 265 Aragon Ave, Coral Gables, Florida, 5-31 Dec 2007.
