Cleaning up the house and playing around with some quartz eggs, I was inspired by re-reading some of the history of Edward Weston.
I’m getting ready to leave town to give a talk at the University of Rochester that I am very much looking forward to. But that along with an upcoming international meeting, a major grant deadline, and a host of other stressors from potentially life changing events do have me remarkably stressed. Perhaps more on all that later…
Grateful for the role of photography in my life to de-stress, and for the constant inspiration that it lends to my work. I’ve been thinking of our work in context of neurodegeneration which in the form of Parkinson’s disease was what cut Edward Weston’s life, and his ground breaking career in photography short. Our work has so much promise for neurodegeneration research, and I need to find a path forward where we can expand that work.
