This book of photos by Michael Stanwood with text by poet, Jack collom, has been in the works for many years. Michael has been a cloud chaser with a simple 35 mm pentax with an 80-300 lens. The process has been one of wait and watch, as convergence of cloud, wind, angle and light serendipitously and ever so ephemerally, presented an image. Nature is the artist here. Up to about 1800, clouds were called "essences in the sky". That was before Luke Howard published his study giving clouds the latin names we have since come to know. Many cultures have seen and continue to see them as floating essences. For Michael, they have contained a rich collection of characters and entities.
I f my hair is on fire,
I can see where to go.
It's only glory,
an avalanche, molecules.
|Beautiful? Beautiful? I've eaten all the beauty, and I'll eat this too!|
