StoneWork - MacGregor Downs
Many people contribute to the creation of the Subject.  Working together, they bring an artistic vision to life.  The contributors may not be artists, but their skill in working stone and earth demonstrates their artistry.  Even after completion, the Subject continues to be a work in progress, affected by nature, time and other artists.  Sculpture develops a patina; rain and wind smooth sharp edges.  Trees and shrubs are pruned to exacting shapes.  The photographer, using light, film and paper is the latest in a succession of artists to interpret the subject.

“No matter how well forms are arranged, the ultimate factor that determines the success of a photograph is light.  The use of light transforms the photograph from a visual to an emotional experience.   We not only see what the photographer saw, but experience the photographer's feelings at the instant of exposure.”     --Joseph D. Lipka
