Disclosure: I purchased “Four Vignettes” by the KSHM Project. I do not know the author, Henry Martin, personally but have had encounters with him on the Goodreads site. I have never had any contact of any kind with the photographer, Karl Strand. The comments that follow are my own personal opinion. I received NO compensated of any kind, or from any one, to provide this review.
I found the photo “Drawing Pain” and the accompanying write up to be very indicative of our society and enjoyed the insight. The photo “Still Standing” showed a defiance built on personal triumph. The photo “Invisible” showed a real insight into the human condition and our tolerance of the intolerable. The photo “Zen in a River of Concrete” was my favorite, and showed the inner peace and grace that can be achieved in a world of chaos and distress. These short notes left quite an impression on me and I would love to see everyone share the insight and wisdom shown by the two artists.
