Artist Statement
There are many reasons I go to the falls of the James. As a photographer, I consider myself primarily an observer of nature. For 'The Rock People’ project, I turn my camera to the observers; the others, like me, who go down to the rocks and who, like me, find refreshment and renewal on the river.
We rock people are a diverse group, but we are connected in spirit by our love of the falls. It’s a place that is also a state of mind. We become the children of nature. We play. We climb the boulders, hop the rocks, swim in the pools and ride the currents. Often we can be seen alone or in pairs doing nothing. We share the understanding that this is a place where the important work of doing nothing comes easy.
This is a place where negative ions abound - unleashed into the air as the water tumbles through fields of rocks calming the spirit and energizing the body with wellbeing. http://thefallline.com/
