Whole is a contemplative photographic narrative from natural places. When alone off paths in natural places I experience a personal tranquility and an opportunity for quiet introspection. The forest, its rivers and the sea speak to me about life in all of its glory and all of its sadness. I sense the existence of parallels between the mysteries I feel there and the puzzles of my own life. I find the discourse calming. I take pleasure from the personal insight and enigmatic impressions I gain from these special occasions.
