NYT article, Torbjorn Rodland
 
I have a hot/cold relationship with photographic art -- until I come across an artist such as Torbjorn Rodland. Here is an article about his work.

I followed a link within the article to a video he made that inspired me to write a two-page poetic interpretation of it. It was a fun exercise. Almost, but not quite, found poetry.

Jim, I saw it and I liked it, too. And I thought this quote had wide applicability to art:

"If there’s only one possible reading of a photograph, then I’m less interested,” Mr. Rodland added. “The photographs are reading you if you’re reading them."

There certainly are a few ways to read some of them ... :cool:

I just got around to reading this, for some reason. I'm very glad you shared it, Jim. I enjoyed looking at and thinking about Rodland's images.
