Photography is a place to look in the visual arts for real engagement with our society. I always suggest photography collecting to people from all walks of life young and old. More and more this notion seems convincing. Exhibitions of American documentary photography are proliferating in galleries as well as in commercial properties and in leading city museums and bookshops. Right now, some important photography exhibits tell us a lot about Americans—who we have been and what was happening during our lifetime.

debate of the unknown or extreme, or enjoying the gentle pace of polite but truthful conversation if I am that way inclined. My friends look forward to joining in, even though the morning after, they may sometimes ache from areas within the mind-muscles not used in a long time. Better still, they always come back, feeling more alert and wanting to challenge their minds even further.

Photography by Nicholas A. Price is an established source of high-quality Americana. Prints I have been fortunate to acquire from some of his collections, even before I came to work for IN Focus Magazine, have been hanging in prime positions all over my apartment for years. They have traveled with me from Asia to Europe to New York, to L.A. and now to Daytona Beach where I now reside in sunny Florida. Price’s’ work has lived with me and I have live with his work.

It’s even more exciting when I email them my latest acquisition. Some have even come prepared with questions or suggested topics of debate to kick of the direction of debate or conversation based around my new prized possession.

The beauty and originality of each photograph is a constant subject of interest and debate for many of my eclectic collection of friends who attend my little intimate soirées that I throw from time to time. My fellow writers and peers – who are self-proclaimed critics of every genre of the literary and visual arts and who of course, shall remain nameless, are philosophers from respected educational establishments. The choice of the photography I tend to gravitate towards and select from Price’s collections reflect my interests, my personality and my own thoughts that sometimes allow me to use as an excuse to open up and debate with my friends on subjects that are serious or fun but always challenge the mind, often taking our debates into dark and unchartered waters. It’s like going through a mental workout and really pushing the limits when I want to venture into serious

I love my collection and deem that I am committed in a marriage of hope, sadness, love, laughter visual stimulation and intelligent conversation. Yes, I live with my art – but how can I live without it?

So even though my home, community and location constantly change every few years, my photography collection remains constant and is the anchor in maintaining my personality within my private space.
