my invisible camera

There is something about a drawing, much more so than a piece of writing, or especially a photograph, that will tell you a lot about who made it. A drawing has to compete with a photograph (a losing battle much of the time), and will never have the speed or capturing ability of a sensor. Unlike the photograph, a drawing describes a longer moment, not just a singular point in time. And as far as we can tell, a drawing is the closest you can get to stepping into someone’s shoes, like Atticus said (and Obama reminded us).

So here are a few moments in time, that maybe add up to say something about myself. These drawings are from journals, pads, and homework, done in trains, old rooms, and classrooms.

The camera wins.dsc_0518
