Kneeling Youth at AFI


What are we to make of Belgian artist George Minne’s solitary kneeling youth and how might contemplating this work illuminate something of our own condition? 
You notice the little card doesn’t help us much.

A photographer and writer with over 25 years experience finding the decisive, under-the-apparent-reality- moment and capturing it on film and in writing for international press, magazines, newspapers including the Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor and agencies such as The Associated Press, AFP, and Gamma Liaison. My work is in private and corporate collections. I was an artist in residence at Polaroid. I've created original and innovative advertising images for Leo Burnett etc. Today, I'm working exclusively in analog media using film, doing hand processing and printing. Using Leica and a funny array of Holga-type and two and a quarter type cameras. I'm currently available for portraits and projects for social good. This I believe: "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." I believe as Cartier-Bresson did, in technique and the ineffable. To shoot without thinking, that a good photograph is a result of an improvisation between the world and the photographer. One must put one's whole heart and mind into play and see what comes. Whatever it is, that moment is sacred and will never come again. Making a photograph is a contemplative act, a spiritual practice.
