Should you go to the newly renovated Phoenix Art Museum, You’ll see in the gelatin silver prints made by Ansel Adams in the 1930’s the clarity and simplicity of his vision.
That is the difference between art and life, between art and memory.
Great art, like the photographs of Ansel Adams, takes our complex world and brings it into focus. It’s there to see if you take the time to look. But there’s no rush. Art waits.
Life does not. Neither does memory. Memory is life exposed to the bright light of time. It fades.
