The Static Image
Here is an excerpt from one of Mr. Miner’s theories on aesthetics: “Neurophysiologists and art scholars agree that complexity creates conditions which transcend logic. Like jazz, classical music, abstract painting and cinematic montage, visual complexity resists analytic interpretation. As the mind fails in its attempt to organize a chaotic image, a reverie develops. Only poetry, the last refuge of language, comes close to evoking this experience.” The events portrayed in Mr. Miner’s photographs are not repeatable. Subject matter, time of day, season of the year, location, prevailing weather and singular point of view dictate unique angles of shadow and light.
