Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

Patina…

“…even the recent past is constantly being used up, swept away,torn down, thrown out, traded in. Fewer and fewer Americans possess objects that have a patina, old furniture, grandparents’ pots and pans – the used things, warm with generations of human touch… essential to a human landscape. Instead, we have our paper phantoms, transitorized landscapes. A featherweight portable museum.”
