Harry Lunn: Father of the market for fine-art photography. (1981)
A WORK IN PROGRESS
I have photographed thousands of people, most becoming life-long friends, all of them stand the separation of time, distance, choice, or in death because of the photograph. They are enshrined by the blink of a camera's eye, providing a reference, a road-map and a testament to Living Art.
It is a formidable task to edit over half-a-million pictures, scan the negatives or slides and then find words. This collection is just the beginning, a "friends in progress," to be continued and updated. Drop me a note if I've photographed you; click the "like" button or comment as a vote to expedite the completion of a specific friend.
DECADE OF ADVENTURE: Fresh and exciting, a decade of innocent encounters, whether temporal or spiritual, all powerful awakenings. A dance of light, faith, and form, converging in time, out of chaos into moments of delight and awe.
INDULGING DEFIANCE: Photography gave me wings but also a sense of boundless creativity. This was a decade of independence, anti-establishment. It was a decade that avoided entrapment, both stylistic and accomplishment,. an era of exploration and renaissance.
SINK OR SWIM: The ’90s were filled with risk and perils. A decade of demanding faith and vision. Jumping before knowing where to land. A decade filled with challenges, difficulties and yet breathtaking miracles.
HEAT’S ON: A decade of transformation. The dawning of the age of Aquarius. Water turning to steam. Fruition from the quest was liberating. It was a decade that exchanged ambition for the magic of the unknown.
