My Photography

Early on in my graduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh I had the rare opportunity to take courses on photography at the Pittsburgh Filmmakers. There I discovered that one takes pictures and that to take a picture one must stand or crouch, as the picture demands. Ever since I have not gone a day without thinking of pictures or seeing pictures or taking pictures. I believe that to take pictures is to reveal the power of things to represent themselves. Things' presenting themselves to us is an old even if contestable idea. But this is the reason I am taking pictures. I see things doing this and I want to say "Look, this here wants you to look."

Here you can see a sample of my work over the years.

A Talk on Animal Lives

In Jonathan Coetzee’s Tanner Lectures, the fictional character of the Australian novelist Elizabeth Costello gives two honorary lectures at Appleton College; the College her son also happens to teach at. The first is entitled “The Philosophers and the Animals” and the second “The Poets and the Animals.” The Tanner Lectures are themselves the lectures Jonathan Coetzee delivered in 1997 at Princeton University.

A Talk on Justice

Το θέμα μου απόψε είναι οι ζωές των ζώων.
Το θέμα μου είναι εάν αυτό που κάνουμε στα ζώα είναι αδικία.
Εάν αυτό που κάνουμε στα ζώα όταν τα βάζουμε πάνω στο τραπέζι μας για να τα φάμε, όταν μετατρέπουμε τις ενέργειες της ζωής τους σε διαδικασίες παραγωγής εμπορευμάτων, όταν τα τρελαίνουμε στο εργαστήριο, όταν ισοπεδώνουμε τον τόπο τους κι όταν τους αλλάζουμε ήπειρο για να τα χαζεύουν τα παιδιά μας στους κήπους, εάν λοιπόν αυτό που κάνουμε στα ζώα είναι αδικία.
