Hi everyone at Brooklyn Art Project,
It's great to be back among you all! First time round I never did properly get into what this community can offer, but I want to act differently now. The first thing a 'newbie' like me notices is the response and welcome all you guys offer... It's really something and for that I thank you.
My main artistic activity is storytelling, followed by photography. I would like to share my developments in these two art forms with you all. Kind of like chatting stuff over with a friend as things move along. I've been 'mad about stories' for some time now and having recently retired I want to really get in deep with this stuff. I am especially interested in what storytelling and storylistening can offer school students, at-risk youth, hospital and hospice clients.
The photography is a massive storytelling-tool and can say so much about relationships or solitude through simply capturing moments...
My daughter and son-in-law just got back from a week in New York City. They visited Ground Zero and were deeply moved. As a response I am re-watching the documentary movie '9/11'. What a piece of powerful, staggering film-making...!
OK folks: here in the UK it is an autumnal evening and twilight is upon us.
