The re-emergence of the artists's hand, after years of suppression, is one of the hallmarks of art-world and art-world influenced photography. This is obvious...in looking at an excellent survey exhibition mounted by the Bronx Museum of Art and called 'Photo/Start'... the smaller images have compact charms of their own, especially the collaborative farm scenes of Dennis Paul and Lynn Small...

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.


—Langston Hughes

Everything is two things that converge.
This range of convergence is really the great area of speculation.
