Creation doesn’t end with the click of the shutter. The squeeze of the trigger is the catalyst. The aim is for subject and artist, character and author to resonate. He carries his graven images with him. Some stare back and cry out for resurrection. He attempts to atone, he must liberate each one and reach an accord. Revision ends when the lost chord sounds, then can he lay aside the healing brush.
