As I Saw Her in 1993
I placed the photographs that I had in that exhibition in the blog yesterday, for me my best ever, to prove a couple of points. One of them is that the blog version of the show did not cost me a cent. Well not free exactly as I have to pay for my domain name and for my web hosting. But that’s it. It means that the web can now allow us to have shows that one time were prohibitively expensive once you found an art gallery to represent you. In Vancouver that was always tough and I would think even tougher now.
Alas not all is perfection. As in that 1993 show I will not sell anything with this virtual one. That is to be expected. But my real sorrow is that I cannot display here what accompanied that show. My friends from AS I See Them provided me with artifacts central to their life which were displayed at the Threshold Gallery in company to my photographs on the walls. Gibson provided me with the typewriter with which he wrote Neuromancer. Erickson passed on one of his pens and a sketch. Gavin Walker lent (it was tough getting him to do it) us his alto sax and his last ever pack of Kools which he never opened. The list goes on with artifacts that were quirky and intimate. I felt and still feel most blessed.

As I Hope To See them in 2012
The photographs will accompany some sort of essay written by my subjects that will begin Me and my…. They will write about something in relation to what they do. Once I have a few I will post them on this blog as a long string or, perhaps in haphazard manner.
These essays will be direct, and I hope, far more intimate versions of As I See Them from, excuse the expression, the horse’s mouth.
