Albany Bulb

  • Albany Bulb
    These photographs are just a few I have taken over the last ten years at The Albany Bulb, also known as the Landfill, the Waterfront and just The Bulb. It is a place I feel passionate about. That much is obvious. There are many of us who believe that this piece of the much hyped Eastshore State Park should have been left untouched and unmanaged - because it is a unique example of what happens when a place naturally and organically self regulates. But the dogma of 'preservation' and 'conservation areas' 'resource protection', 'habitats' and 'liability' overrules all individual identity. They cannot leave anything untouched, un-designed. It is as if if they (the park planners) didn't make it, it has no value. Rules, guidelines, regulations, interpretive signage, fences, safety, sanctioned art - it leaves nothing to the imagination. That is what the landfill meant to us - a place of unlimited imagination.

"But I wouldn't want to do it a different way. Maybe it's that I couldn't do it a different way. It's not the dogs or their loss that makes this murky sadness, it's not the loss of Berta that causes the tears to be such familiar friends to me. It comes from a profound sense that I still have not proven myself in the world, it won't matter what I accomplish, what books I produce, what iconic photographs of mine make people smile in comforting recognition, how many animals I save, how much I follow my father's exhortation to do 'justice' in the world, how many times the vulnerable can depend on me. It just doesn't seem to matter. There just is no comfort when the skin you inhabit is a jagged edge to the soul within."

we seem to have the same accounting book. different reasons maybe but same emotion jill(ie).



oh man jill. those tears of yours. you know already they were the first of you i fell for. then the sadness. then your jagged edges. then and then and then...

I'm sorry for your losses, Jill. I think you've already accomplished much, that it has mattered and you have mattered.
