I am going to bend the rules today.
“Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.
When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images.”
Ah but sometimes the dialogue can be between a picture and an image in your mind. Today was Day 1 of classes at Smith College. I did not need to be there to form an image of the morning.
13 years ago on 9/03/2001, I was there. I still have that image in my mind but I also have the photographic proof.
I also have a third image in my mind that will be familiar to most of you, an image of a bright morning 8 days after this picture was taken. Unimportantly, my world changed all three of these days.
Extremely importantly, my daughter’s world dissolved and reassembled in a new configuration on each of these days.
