picturing OLD BEAUTY

Old beauty sounds like a contradiction in terms. So often as a culture youth is equated with beauty. We’re quick to throw old things (and often old people) to the side. However, as I look through the lens, aged objects capture my fancy. There is something oh so intriguing about a weathered piece of wood. The way the sun glimmers off a rusty bar. I like to think of the lens as a form of a alchemy. It offers us an opportunity to see an aged ordinary thing in a novel, often extraordinary way. And, by click the shutter, we literally transform the old into new.
