    Equivalence: The Perennial Trend

    Equivalence: The Perennial Trend...
    Bringing the subject to life again, and again.
    Having had the opportunity during the 70's to camera workshop with M White, this was very often evocated:
    What else can an image be ?

    I've never quite understood the phrase "for what else it is," but I found the reading interesting and illuminating. I suspect I'll return to it multiple times.

    To understand the phrase you would first have to understand Minor. He was a mystic. For whatever reason, he liked my abstract work, juried me into group exhibitions, and later into his own at MIT. However, he saw things in my work that I never intended, and he did the same with Edward Weston. That was Minor, but also the root of meaningful photography, communication on different levels. He was candid with me once when I got a bit off track, and I appreciate Minor more as time passes --- it is good to see his work being exhibited again, a flashback to a very important time in American photography.

    Miguel, I like your photograph, thanks.

    This is a good topic.
    Jim, I like that photo. You almost got the 10 & 2 time layout. You got a good mix of good photo qualities there.
    The time, inflexible structure, wear, seem to be cracking the ledge as if a personal warning+allusion in a photo instead of words; that's the "what else it is" to me.

    I enjoy reading Minor White, and I have no problem understanding the mystique. I always have a problem implementing it.

    Counter-clockwise and clockwise at the same time... That's the ideal.

    These questions, of course, poke at the floodgates of critical theory.

    Connotation, denotation, metaphor, metonymy, synecdoche, symbol, where meaning resides, how it got there, how to find it, if it even exists ...

    Re: Equivalence: The Perennial Trend

    What a great start to what's sure to be an interesting thread. I particularly like your initial image Miguel; there are worlds in that photo! Equivalence is something I've thought a lot about. Actually, for the last couple of years, I've been working on a project that I think is pertinent, and I'd like to share it here. It's called "Correspondence." For me the word conveys the idea of relationships between images and ideas, images and emotions, and the relationship of the images to each other, but it also means to suggest correspondence as in dispatches; communications between myself and the viewer. The photos are where we meet. In any case, I'm not sure what will become of this project, but if only a few people really feel it, that will be okay. The link is below. There are 99 photos, so it can take a minute to load. Thanks friends.
