Pathways

Wisdom stands at the turn in the road and calls upon us publicly, but we consider it false and despise its adherents.
— Khalil Gibran

Pathways

Looking out into the world, I am drawn to the lines that divide and direct, leading my eyes, bounding the world, implying structure. One type of line that intrigues me is the pathway. Road or trail, train tracks or sidewalks, paths created by humans provide tantalizing ambiguity. They represent the incursion of our species into the world beyond our physical bodies, and they almost become veins in the landscape that bring life to our civilization. Yet they mysteriously recede from the eye and disappear into the landscape when set in a frame. Common phrases like, “around the bend” or “over the horizon,” have their own connotations of the unknown. They are an unresolved becoming, representing hope and fear in equal measure, and with my images of these pathways I try to ask the question, “Do you have the courage to traverse the risk inherent in the unknown?”
