David Williams - Genius!

A photographer I adore who explores many themes and ideas that really interest me is David WIlliams. Been drooling over his 1995 series 'Findings...Bittersweet' today. Reading the accompanying essay by James Lawson the following paragraph stood out and was helpful to me in my approach to the archetypes series project i am working on.

"Williams’ evasive photographic method - blurred and often bleached images - allows him to explore the territory of feeling and imagination. It is where matter turns into spirit, the place wandered by German Romanticism. Where things with names turn into pigment and where matter turns into spirit, art can turn into abstract expressionism. Though discoverable by the individual, it is not a private land."
