Coffee, Coffee Everywhere...and Many a Drop to Drink*
Much beloved, coffee is everywhere. We start our day with it, we end a meal with it, we use it as an excuse for a sweet treat, can’t have a biscotti without a coffee.
We take it with us in travel mugs or paper cups as we drive our cars, or we walk down the street.
It warms us on a cold day.
We drink it “black,” “regular,” “light and sweet,” or fortified with distilled spirits in an Irish Coffee.
We brew it at home and we visit coffee shops for a cup.
We roast the beans, we grind the beans.
It drips slowly, or it streams out under pressure.
We meet over coffee to discuss business or start a new relationship.
It is a part of our social being and culture.
*Inspired by a line from Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner – “…Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Following in the footsteps of Dad and Uncle Walter, my first photos were family events, holiday snaps, birthdays, vacations at the shore, Thanksgiving dinners, a family trip to Marseilles, France.
A camera was a means of recording the world around me as I passed through it.
Before long, I discovered photography allowed creative expression, a means of telling a dynamic story in place of a static moment in time. I seek the images that draw people in and allow them to add their own experiences to the narrative.
Often, I have in mind the image I wish to capture and find something completely different in the viewfinder; everchanging sublime light and shadow playing across shape and form saturated with subtle colors marked by a flash of vibrant red, green, yellow or blue.
