Playwright Portrait, Young Jean Lee, 2007, Excerpt from Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals x

Playwright Portrait, Young Jean Lee, 2007, 
GROUNDWORK OF THE METAPHYSIC OF MORALS:

FAH LO SEE:
Everything is fairly clear and straightforward, like on a balcony in bare feet with the stone of the balcony against your face, shot in the back, fallen to the ground with an arrow sticking out of your head.

And I’m sorry to have been such a disappointment to you. I mean that sincerely. But I also feel kind of like, fuck you.

Why can't you set up your camera in my brain? Bore a hole in my skull and let 'er rip. (Lurid sound effect) There's no plainness here, but heaving oceans ringed with pearls and ancient cities rising in the mist… Grab your tripod, wonders are at hand… Holy men calling the faithful to prayer as women shed their clothing at the river's edge… Click! Jeweled elephants splash beside them, their reflections shiver and merge -- slender arms dissolving into rippling tusks -- loosened hair painting bashful flanks… Click! Now you see them, now you don't… A breast, a tail, a jeweled eye… Click! Macaws scream over head (sound effect), or is it the laughter of the women as they drift further from the shore, their shouts becoming hoarse and strange… (Sound effect) Aim your camera here, Mr. Hugo. (Tapping her temple) This is where beauty lies… Mysterious, inchoate and out of sight! Click!

 from Mary Jane:

MARY JANE: It’s still raining out there, huh?

TENKEI: Yes. They’re predicting more floods.

MARY JANE : I have a friend…I’m worried about her garden. (brief pause) Oh, no, that’s right. That’s right. She lives on a hill. (she’s briefly comforted by that) My memory…

TENKEI: Sure.

MARY JANE: I keep getting disoriented. They’ve moved Alex’s room a few times. This morning I came out of the bathroom and went to the wrong bed. But not a bed he had been in before. I took a wrong turn, then I went to the right spot in the wrong room. There was a teenager there. A nurse was rubbing him down with lotion. He was staring at the ceiling. I wasn’t sure what my mistake was for a moment. Was it the right bed but the wrong child? The right child, the wrong…time zone?

Wolverine Pass, Kootenay National Park, Canada, 2000 x

Wolverine Pass, Kootenay National Park, Canada, 2000 

My favorite camp site in the world is Wolverine Pass.  I spent several days camped in this pass while I photographed in Kootenay National Park. Isolated, yet protected, this poacher's gateway into the park provided a place where I shed my tent and took off on day trips to photograph points further; leaving at dawn and returning at dusk.
