Photographs are only paper or film or pixels. They allude to something. Photographs are illusions. Photographers often suggest, we hint, but we are not always so direct. Illusions are unreal, they... More > are mirages. And often they exist because the stories we tell ourselves are as astounding as what really happened. The text that accompanies the images in this book are not expanded captions. They are the stories I have told myself about the images. Some of them are as absolutely true and correct as I can possibly make them. Others are impressions. They are things the image has said to me and may have little or nothing to do with whatever the observer of these images may take away.< Less

This project began because I have a deep and abiding respect for the astounding effort it takes to work with stone. Stone carving is difficult enough, but writing in stone requires a level of passion... More > and grace not matched by many skilled crafts. I am only a photographer and I began to collect examples of this work in the course of traveling and was often simply struck by the beauty of the carved letters without bothering or being really interested in what was being written about. There is no intention here be a linguistic scholar or a typographer.< Less
