Hopkins 170 W Indiana – photography copyright of the artist, Tom Wilker
One of the nice opportunities that have come out of my publication of Bad Trip -Sad Trip in LensWork (“In passing”, the Lenswork title) is the networking with other photographers who have been working on this same theme and the opportunity to review and discuss their work.
One of those whose photographs I am enjoying is by Tom Wilker, whose web site is here for his series Cross Roads. It turns out that due to his extensive driving in the Indiana area, he is familiar with some of the memorials that I captured in the same area that are a part of my series. This is a self-assigned series that he has been working on since last March.
Many of his images, such as Hopkins, are infused with a sense of atmosphere, which seem to work very well in bringing out an emotional connection.
Best regards, Doug
