Artist statement for exhibition at Roxbury Community College “Road Warrior”
To satisfy a persistent inquisitiveness that began sometime in my adolescence I have been roaming the world to see & meet new cultures. Some literary pundits call it wanderlust, farsickness. At a certain point I figured out how to add photography to justify my obsession.
Magazines, television, movies & books opened up a vast, alien, unimaginable universe. From an early age I wanted to see for myself.
A life changing realization that what I was being taught by my leaders, teachers, mentors, parents & friends was largely false. Whether they were cliches, fantasies or just misinformation being passed along or foisted on the public by lethargy or agenda, they were wrong...intentionally or accidentally.
