CapMeet Featured Artist for Slideluck III – Robert G. Earnest
After a very serious accident Robert used his “curious camera” to help himself heal and thus found beauty and meaning in what surrounded him in the night.
In his words:
In January of 2013 I awoke to the sight of acoustic tile ceiling panels. Experience has proven time and time again that this signals the start of a very bad day.
I would soon learn that I had encountered an unannounced patch of black ice waiting at the bottom of a hill on a dark country road.
I was left with broken bones from head to toe and no recollection of the incident whatsoever. It seems I never will.
Restless with the healing process I began to hobble out into the night with a curious camera and a measured pace. There was no reasoning, no intention to save the world but soon there was an obsession with the beauty of the world at night. A beauty that few adults ever experience combined with the vulnerability of being somewhat crippled and alone in the darkness of the night. A lot of time was spent observing and questioning my own irrational fears. Overcoming those fears afforded me some of my life’s most treasured moments. Moments drenched in the perfect beauty of the here and now.
I’d like to share with you some of the beauty that was “Last Night…”
