About the Book
These photographs were taken over a wide span of years in Athens Georgia. They are in an order that weaves to & fro, a concept inspired by circular concepts of Time (the Hopi Indians & others). Borges' Magicians of Thlon deny the very existence of Time, a provocative idea when considering concepts of order. I chose the title Aeronautica (the pretended art of sailing in a vessel through the air or atmosphere - chambers cyclopedia 1753) because it seemed suggestive of dreams, hopes and visions which, by both magic and labor, may one day be realized. Just as flight came into being, many of the dreams of the citizens of Athens have come to fruition. This book is in part a tribute to that ongoing evolution.
