Blowing & caught; wafting & swirling; ever present, never twice the same.

Apologies to Robert Irwin, an artist whose granite marker, inscribed with the phrase,

EVER PRESENT

NEVER TWICE

THE SAME

was part of an installation on the grounds of Wave Hill, a New York City public garden where I worked in 1987.

  1. I can’t say for sure, of course, but I don’t think Mr. Irwin would object…. I like what you’ve done with it…and do especially enjoy the laundry on the barbed wire….

    • Thank you – I’m glad you like that one – it’s just rags, and the fence is along a field far from “anywhere”, and I see the same thing now and again: rags tied to a fence. To keep cattle from accidentally bumping into the barbed wire? Don’t know, but I love the way it looks.

  2. At first glance that second image looks like delicate fabric on a clothesline – but then you notice the barbed wire.
    It’s very beautiful but also makes a deeper statement.

    • Yes – a contrast, the barbed wire and softly blowing rags. I’m glad you took the time to scroll back, and then to comment. These are some of the photos I care most about, so thank you very much!
