“Photographers do not cure like a doctor, defend like a lawyer, analyze like a scholar, offer support like a priest, amuse like a raconteur or intoxicate like a singer, they simply look. That is enough—no, that is all. For a photographer, to look is everything. That is why photographers must continue to look things through and through. Photographers should gaze at their subjects head on, their whole form becoming an eye as they face the world. To stake their everything on looking, that is to be a photographer”
Littlefields is happy to announce issue number 8- photos of paintings by Portland artist (and co-owner of the fabulous Division Leap Books) Kate Schaefer. Future issues of our magazine will contain photos of drawings, concrete poems and other kinds of interesting visual art, in addition to “regular” photographs.
