I’m interested in capturing the essence of a moment and stripping it down to its fundamental elements. I look for the stillness in the busyness, the silences on the periphery of the day’s commotion. These photographs were all taken in busy settings: a street corner in San Francisco, a research facility in Boulder, Colorado, and a bookstore in Petaluma, California at the height of the holiday season. I choose a minimalist approach because I want to eradicate distraction, distill the moment in its unique intensity and energy.

 

Thomas Gillaspy is a northern California photographer with an interest in urban minimalism. Further information about his work and publications are available at:

Robert Carr’s “Anchor” is what happens when the tangible aspects of heritage are missing. The speaker is left holding a telephone cord and the remnants of his mother’s voice getting further away. A concise stack of images begin the poem, taking us back to a time when the simplicity of toys meant family. In Carr’s hands, the poem is rooted and rootless at the same time, and now I reflect on the rotary phone, heirlooms from old houses, and my people. -Eric Steineger Managing Editor/Senior #amreading #TheCitronReview #Spring2019Issue #10thanniversary #cheersto10years https://citronreview.com/2019/03/20/anchor/
