Signs of Art
I'm not sure what it is about the word ART but I find myself driven to photographing it - often, over and over! Maybe it's about the multiple resonances the word has for me personally; maybe it's about the fact that this one tiny, three-letter word packs such a powerful punch - for so many people in so many ways. I'm not going to analyse my attraction to the word beyond that. I'm just going to bring you my latest ART sign - this one imbued with so much more by virtue of the accompanying words. I ground to a halt underneath it - at Riccarton Rotary Market. Suffice to say, I wasn't driven to photographing the goods for sale underneath the sign.
