Photographs by TOM GRIFFITH
On display at Urban Acupuncture Center, Clintonville through April 2017.
Before becoming a yoga teacher and massage therapist I studied visual communications, photojournalism and, ultimately, Buddhist art history. I have had a lifetime love affair with the camera; behind the lens, always the observer in mostly silent contemplation. As a child I was fascinated by the visual documentation held within the family album. After inheriting my brother’s camera as a teenager I began to document my hikes and wanderings through the city and woods. My interest is in natural light and the extraordinary of the seemingly mundane. Movement, pattern, flow and physical expression are what drive my compositions. I see these pieces like tiles that could be endlessly rearranged to emphasize or change the perspective, writing and rewriting the story within.
