    Another very good one!

    Having been through the same loss I can understand the effect it has and the legacy it leaves. One’s life is never the same again, and if you’re a photographer, you just can’t prevent it coming through in your work, and you shouldn’t try to deny it its inevitable, altering power. You have either to give up or to continue with an almost manic dedication to your art. At least, that’s how I see it, how I survive.

    Holy **** Ted – just watched your piece on Keith Carter and it is absolutely beautiful. I have enjoyed dozens of your videos over the last year but this one is so special. How involved are you? Well based on the content, not at all – but someone has to prepare the canvas for the artist to work on and creating the listening zone that creates the communication zone – you did that so well. Totally impressed. Howard Jackson
