sound of silence

last night i watched some of the coverage of the september 11 anniversary. ten years. paul simon was on my screen singing “the sound of silence”. i’ve never really noticed the words before…

hello darkness, my old friend
i’ve come to talk with you again
because a vision softly creeping
left its seeds while I was sleeping
and the vision that was planted in my brain
still remains
within the sound of silence

i realised that a number of the images i included in 4 : the exhibition were from right around the world trade centre site. we were there on our first day in new york and i shot the images because they spoke to me- in retrospect they have all kinds of meaning and significance in them. here’s one of my extra faves¬†“vesey st, 10.51am”.


Lauren Waye - thank you darlin, that’s so sweet of you! :)xo

Meleah Farrell - I too saw the footage of Paul Simon singing this. Was so moving……
That’s what I love about your work Lauren – although your images may be silent, they speak volumes!
Love, love, love!
