There is usually an event that stands out in our mind’s,
forever etched by the emotional impact. I remember hearing
about JFK, Martin Luther King & Bobby. I remember the
shuttle explosion, Princess Diana’s car crash. But above
all I remember 911. It has haunted me from those first moments
I heard about it when I lived in Toronto.
Upon my return to Regina, as I got more involved in my passion
for photography, I thought of ways I could contribute - a
commemoration to the tragedy. As I completed my first book
of a fusion of photography and poetry, known as “poetography”,
friends from Denver (Bob McGannon and Denise DeCarlo) suggested
I could create a poem and a simple picture of the skyline.
Over two years of work, it has evolved to the image below,
a gift to anyone who remembers and hopes for a better tomorrow.
