After arriving in Dallas, John and Linda took me to their home. I love visiting a subjects home. I have always said, “you really don’t know someone until you run your finger along their bookshelves.”
This type of interaction though brief is important. While trying not to be intrusive and asking permission to take photographs I try to absorb a life time of memories. I often wish I could be alone in these spaces to run my finger along the shelves and envision a past. These pictures remind me of another commission of a former professor at my undergraduate college in Vermont and visiting Richard Hathaway’s home, or spending time in his office.
