Near the neighborhood of Palermo in Buenos Aires, there is a large indoor flea market. There are a few stalls with old lights and knick knacks, but the majority of the market is devoted to re-purposed furniture. However, in a small stall in the middle of the building we wandered into a shop run by an artist named Giannini. His...

I posted a piece this morning using some pictures of a small tree unfolding its leaves. When I passed by 10 hours later it was shocking to see how much they'd grown. Here's the first from this morning This is a side view 10 hours later Here is another view this morning And another from 10 hours later It's crazy how much it moved in...

I have been photographing in the Meadow for almost a year now. I have images from all 4 seasons. Today I got a shot of a group of leaves unfolding from some kind of small tree. I’m not a nature photographer, and I’m not interested in the plants as much as I am the process. I started to photograph the...

I think a lot about science, but not the way most people do. I believe that there is a lot of knowledge to be gained through the scientific method, just as there is a lot of knowledge to be gained from the Bible. That is to say that both tell us important stories about life, but neither of them tell...

For the last two weeks, Suki has been going through our older footage of Dr. Sarno. We only have about 8 hours of tape from our early shoots, but the majority of it is strong, and the passage of time makes it more powerful. Yesterday she showed me a clip from 2004 of Dr. Sarno saying in French, “The more...

One of the first airlines that I joined as a frequent flier was American Airlines. After that, I got an American Airlines credit card. The other day, I checked my account and was surprised to find that I had racked up nearly 450,000 miles, nearly half a million. 350,000 of those are actual miles flown. I’ve always been anti-elitist, so...

this is a very long post, but I think it's worth the read. I was trying to connect a lot of ideas that are related to "Story of Pain". The other day I was texting with a friend in Billings, MT when my phone rang. I answered, assuming it was she, but instead found myself listening to a United Airlines supervisor...

I have been meditating fairly regularly since this fall. I have found it to be extremely useful in all aspects of my life. As I have worked on Story of Pain the last couple of years I have tried to point the camera at myself from time to time to document my own healing process. I haven't done it recently...

My cousin Ed brought his daughter Arianna to visit for my daughter’s birthday. Ed has had a very deep influence on my thinking. About 25 years ago we went for a run together and he talked to me about his study of the history of physics. He explained that as scientists get a deeper understanding of something, the science becomes...

When we look backwards and find that the unthinkable has become the norm, it creates a frame through which we can examine the present. By “the unthinkable”, I am referring to ideas that are either so embedded in our culture that they are like stenches that we cannot smell, or run so counter to the prevailing cultural way of thinking,...

After my crazy flight to Billings I got off the plane and started shooting. I won't go into details of the shoot as it's in its early stages. I shot pretty much constantly from 1 that afternoon until 1 two days later. Then I got on a bus in Billings and headed to Missoula. I got some great pictures on...
