“It seems to me it’s a photographer’s duty to try to put an idea into his or her work. In this photo I have tried to express what seems to me one of the strongest proofs that there probably isn’t a god, in which Dawkins believes, namely that ‘the existence of God is a scientific hypothesis like any other.’ It is certainly in the finitely touching expression of a young man, which he himself was conscious of, when he is sat quietly in the corner by the heater. At the same time, there is something humble, something sublunary, which is that he is destined for the worms. This is far from all theology, simply the fact that the poorest little barista or bike messenger can have moments of emotion and inspiration that give him or her a feeling of an eternal home, and of being close to it.”
I don’t really like Art Walk. It’s crowded, most of the art sucks, that baby was killed last month by a licenseless driver who wasn’t charged, there are cops everywhere, and right after the cops leave (to their homes outside of downtown), the bars close, and all sorts of men and women get in fights in the streets. Anyway, I had a good time sticking around Six Hundred (600 Spring St.) listening to DJ Higher.
