Scott Stulberg, Photographer

The real journey of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

I love that quote, found on Scott Stulberg's 'About' page.

Manic sent me an email telling me about a photographer called Scott Stulberg . His website is quite quite stunning.

Thanks manic.

Those photos are amazing alright. I have spent a pleasant time parusing al of your latest stuff ... once again, thoroughly enjoyable and informative and I agree with all your political statements! However I hate to say this as a kiwi - but I prefer marmite ...

It's a great site, isn't it?

I have to say, Vegemite and marmite, it all sounds yukkie to me. I'll stick with my chocolate paste. That's delicious!

I love that quote too. Joyce might add, "To describe what you discover, you will need to create a new language too."

I guess poems are all about finding new language, new ways to express things. Poems are the opposite of idiom. And poems I think are better suited to describing the familiar anew rather than describing the unfamiliar. We don't have epic poems today describing adventures; these are written instead as novels. To me, poems really only work if at least half of the activity is in the reader's brain. That is like a foundation upon which you build -- only you build not knowing whether the foundation is there or not. Some people won't get your poem and there's nothing to be done. It is a little like fine art, where so much depends on what is outside the frame. I sometimes wonder if the picture is framing the world, rather than the world framing the picture.

Also I prefer Vegemite. I like the way hot sauces make your mouth burn, but I'm not crazy about the way Marmite does it. I keep some in the cupboard though -- for entertaining guests.
