A stairway to....

What is this blog about? In a nutshell, it's about black and white darkroom photomontage. Every few weeks, a new image with a few words about it, kinda poetic, philsophical.
For more details - check out the archive, the first post, April 26, 2015.

If you're interested in how i create these images, i got another blog for you:

"Stairway to...?"

The desert seems like a place that is almost devoid of life, harsh, inscrutable, totally unwilling to reveal it's secrets.
The emptiness sucks you in, and soon you learn what the emptiness teaches. It is actually a stepping stone, a stairway of sorts. Or perhaps a mirror - you see in it something of yourself - what that is, is up to you.

In a previous post i quoted Rumi:

'Only an empty bucket can be refilled'

The same is true here. There's a lot of silence here, so...
I'll quote Rumi again:

'Silence is the language of god, all else is poor translation.'
