My personal favorite of Gronsky's is the one of the ducks in the snow. The snow is so light it looks like it isn't there, and the ducks look like they're sort of floating in the middle of a vast urbane area. Plus, the color is incredible, the ducks are all different colors, and the trees in the background are an interesting hue of green. And the white is luminous. It's a gorgeous photo.
In this series my favorite photo is of a man shaving in front of a jankey mirror. This photo is great because it brings out so much. What sort of life he's living, the background, his facial expression. It really looks like he's thinking hard about something deep in his life. I loved it
I recently read a poem by Audre Lorde titled, "A Litany for Survival" The poem's final lines read:
"So it is better to speak
we were never meant to survive."
These immortal words have inspired me to express myself through writing and I hope that what I say stimulates both resonance and penchant for those who read it.
