I shoot photos – record music – cut videos – write prose – dive the big blue…and some other stuff….
Photo-documenting the art of life in transit inspires me. Water is my thing. So is the desert. It’s all an adventure. I’ve lariumed mozzies in tropical climates and tread from Amsterdam to Manila, New York to Sydney, Port Moresby to Baja and countless miles road-eyeing California. It’s like stepping across time mining stories and deciphering how they relate to evolving modern views of us, them and the legends. When you need escape, for me, the road is one remedy – conjuring, exploring and discovering the “-ologies and -ographies” of the planet. And even detonating the spin cycle of manufactured BS while manifesting ideas in motion. I sometimes record the narratives of the destinations explored in audio and image. In Papua New Guinea there is a word, wantok, meaning “someone who speaks my language” Everyone has a story, so it’s easy to imagine the planet as one thread in the universal fabric of thought, feeling and spirit – of people having a conversation – about relatable experiences, no matter where you call home.
Journey on, RC.
