On Richard Olderman

Amazing work and amazing artist. Dick has been very influential in my taking up photography and pondering the state of the world.

"This small body of work, the grains of sand found on the beach at Little Talbot Island in Northeast Florida, keeps me mindful of Nature's reality. Here, worked upon by the wind, rain , sea and tides, the grains of sand ebb and flow in an exact manner to create such overwhelming beauty that I am guided back to my heart's desire.

In a civilized world of intentional brutality, one can easily lose what is most important about being alive. The necessary awareness of beauty and pleasure that should surround our days is there...constantly to be experienced. The moments of being a small part of this beauty, working with the possibilities it offers, is what I love to be doing. To have the good fortune to share what I have discovered completes the cycle.

Hopefully, you might be touched to discover your own location in the natural order of things. These images of sand are my evidence of two becoming one."
