Preface

 

The artistic process of capturing a still image of what is in the mind’s eye on a two -dimensional surface will always be fascinating to me, whether through the medium of painting or the medium of photography. In my career as an artist I have simultaneously pursued both but have only exhibited my painting. As an amateur photographer, it has been my practice to always take my camera on my daily walks and document imagery that visually speaks to me, and these images have remained in my portfolios or computer files. Through this monograph, I am putting some of my photographs into a published format .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Introduction

 

“What the people are within, the buildings express without.”

—Louis Sullivan

 

 

What follows is a collection of photos from my early morning walks around downtown Hattiesburg in May 2009. The downtown emerged in the late 19th century, before automobiles and electricity. As it turned into the 20th century, the town’s first “skyscrapers” emerged, shaping the contour of the city, which are visible from all locations in my walk. I have selected 14 of these images for this e-book.
