Continuing Interest

­­ Continuing Interest

­is a title that reflects my lifelong love of creating images. Capturing fleeting moments through photography is both my profession and my way of exploring, experiencing, and interacting with the world. Some of the images are from simply being in the right place at the right time and having the experience to know what to look for. Other images start as an idea and take time to develop. My eye is alert not only to formal concerns with color, shape, and design but to the content and context of a given situation as well. The unusual, the unexpected are pieces of the moment I try to find. Real life offers some of the best theater.

­ The work represented covers a range from transparency film to the most current digital technologies. The process of selecting the images for this book has enabled me to reflect on the changes and continuities in my work over the years. But I’m looking forward to finding­­new images to pursue my continuing interest. Salem Krieger February 2009­­

MAN BATTLING THE DUST “Who is that stooped over with broken broom and dustpan, every morning and every night, working? Working in the morning when the saffron sunrays fulminating out of the east sparkle on the placid river? Working in the night when the stars of heaven areas bright as the eyes of angels? Stop looking at the clock. The neurotic whip master has gone to the bank. Pause, breathe, there now, tell me, for waiting for me in our floral palace high above the polluted clouds. What creature is this and what is the nature of his labor? If you must know - It is Man, and he is battling the dust!” Organic Poems, Michael Sobsey­­

MASSACHUSETTS story on organic farming seeds of solidarity farm

“Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. Man may be civilized in some degree without great progress in manufactures and with little commerce with his distant neighbors. But without the cultivation of the earth, he is, in all countries, a savage. Until he gives up the chase and fixes himself in some place, and seeks a living from the earth, he is a roaming barbarian. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization.� Daniel Webster
