Nothing Fancy

Curving Cornices, Silvery Steeple
San Ysidro, New Mexico, 2015

Nothing fancy here, just the simple facade of one of the very many, very cool little churches that dot the landscape of northern New Mexico.  So much contemporary photography seems to be about grabbing attention, whether it be by grand subjects, super-saturated colors, gimmicky concepts, or other “look at me” kinds of things.  I wonder if there’s still a place for quieter, more understated kinds of photography?  I hope so.  Quietude and understatement seem to be qualities that don’t carry a lot of weight in our culture, which is a small tragedy, since so many good things can be found in these small things.
