This is my portrait of Greg Lawler working on his latest project.
He creates with a camera, a hammer, a saw, a rock tumbler.
Greg creates with the tools he makes.
My last few months before moving to Kauai were marked by early morning photo walkabouts with Greg Lawler and crew. This is a long tradition with Greg: wake up early, take a camera on a walk, eat breakfast. I love these times with Greg.
Lately, Greg has had an intense focus on creating a series for his up coming exhibit early next year.
Working with the American flag an other symbols of what it means to be an American, he is making statements that combine the depth of his love and his gratitude for what he receives living in this community.
