Fracture & Fragment 

One day while waiting for my wife outside a store in Savannah Georgia I looked down at the sidewalk and noticed the cracks in the concrete had a nice quality about them.  I had never noticed the linear qualities of cracks in a concrete sidewalk and, had I not had some time on my hands, I might have never taken the time to pull out the camera to document it, but I did. I had investigated similar qualities in printmaking and in my studio practice so it was not too far a leap to notice the stresses in a material out in the landscape. I now make a note of cracks in sidewalk where ever I go. Having made this observation I have now noted that not all cracks are equally so interesting. There is a particular relation between the surface and the line that makes for the best image.
