A place for everything and everything in its place.
Instagram is for the everyday, photographs made from my phone.
Facebook has been a platform to occasionally share personal photographs with friends.
My website remains the place for a curated selection of my professional work.
I’ve decided to create a space to share things that don’t fit my other on-line platforms. My new Tumblr page – Red Stick Rambler - will be a place to share found imagery such as vernacular photographs and postcards, favorite objects from my home, collected artwork, material from my bookshelves including photo albums I obsessively made for years. I’ll also share ‘mix tapes’ I’ve made even more obsessively. The blog will be a key of sorts to my home.
I’ll share things I’m inspired by and that have shaped my aesthetic sensibilities. Perhaps you’ll be inspired too.
Finally, I need to give a shout-out and perhaps an apology for the name. The Red Stick Ramblers were a terrific band from Baton Rouge that disbanded in 2013. I love the name and since they are no longer performing, I’m borrowing it in the singular. Their music was a blend of Cajun, Country, Western Swing, and Ragtime Jazz. They borrowed heavily from their influences but created something uniquely their own. I hope this blog will do the same.
