One Image, Every Day: April – November 2014

1″If one really wishes to be master of an art, technical knowledge of it is not enough. One has to transcend technique so that the art becomes an ‘artless art’ growing out of the Unconscious.”

— Eugen Herrigel, Zen in the Art of Archery

Many years ago I took a photography class at the International Center for Photography called Roll a Day taught by the wonderful Susan Kleckner.

We shot one roll of film each day, processed it and chose an image to represent every day of our lives.  We were making an effort to “transcend” the technique that is a clear part of photography and move toward an unconscious (and constant) way of seeing and making art.

Susan passed away of ovarian cancer a few years back, photography and film have moved into the digital world and the class is no longer offered.  This visual blog represents my daily practice of making images and striving toward new ways of seeing between April & November 2014.
