About the Photos
The Empty Chair This concept evolved from the sudden and unexpected passing of the young son of very dear friends of mine. He was an aspiring filmmaker and working in the field when he was lost in a tragic accident. The grief was overwhelming, all encompassing, and lasting. My visual work turned toward the broad metaphor of the “Empty Chair” as I heard Sting perform the song written for the movie based on the life of the photojournalist, James Foley. The song, “The Empty Chair” is quite beautiful and simultaneously full of hope as well as grief, joy and despair. But, as grief evolves, I looked into differing meanings that could rationally be drawn from simply an Empty Chair. I discovered much to my delight that the possibilities are endless. Likewise, there is the Broken Chair. People come and they go. There are many lyrics one could apply to “The Empty Chair. “ I found myself suddenly completely immersed into the chairs. It began in Palo Duro Canyon and wound up in front of the Morning Glories in my backyard. Many have already come on gone in the Chair, and there are more to come. Eventually, many will transform into other media. I hope you enjoy the show.
