Yes, you may reference, Dionne Warwick’s version of Walk On By, a song composed by Burt Bacharach, with lyrics by Hal David. It was a top ten hit in 1964, the year of my birth. When I listen to Walk on By, to me it’s a song about regret. These photographs are about listening to my creative impulses and allowing myself to follow them-– to not, “Walk on by.” In the medium of photography if one does not act and stop, take out a camera, whatever the circumstance and make a photograph the opportunity is gone, the moment will change. This is an enormous change in creative process for me after practicing painting for over twenty years. As a painter my eyes were always open taking in what I saw so that later it might be translated into paint. Color relationships, gesture, etc.. The making of the object was one brush stroke at a time and I had at least the illusion of having complete control over the canvas surface. When I am out walking and I see something that I want to capture with my camera, I must take it out at that moment, or spend days trying to revisit and recreate what I originally missed.
