From My Front Door

Willson states: “These pictures were made within walking distance of my home in Fayetteville, New York, a suburb of Syracuse. I imagine my neighborhood is similar to thousands of suburbs around the world, so perhaps my meanderings will have some value for others. The presence of Henry David Thoreau, who detailed his neighborhood in Walden, is always with me. I’m also returning to my roots: the first roll of film I shot, 35 years ago, was taken while delivering newspapers on foot near my home in Cayuga Heights, a suburb of Ithaca, New York.

I have always been drawn to places where the natural world intersects with the manmade, so the suburb is perfect for me. I certainly enjoy the national parks in the US, and take joy in the majesty of a sunrise. But it seems more important to me to find inspiration in a thin layer of snow covering blacktop, a telephone pole, a wooden fence and some vinyl siding. These are my surroundings and I insist on creating images of them that intrigue me.”

Willson Cummer is a fine-art photographer, curator and teacher who lives near Syracuse, New York. He has exhibited nationally in juried shows; his first solo NYC show was at OK Harris.  He is a New York Foundation for the Arts MARK Alumnus. He publishes the blog “New Landscape Photography”. His work explores humanity’s place in the environment. You can preview his Parking Garages book on the Blurb website. Willson’s limited-edition prints are for sale in Central New York at the Gandee Gallery of Fabius. The Pierogi gallery, in Brooklyn, also carries Willson’s work, as does the online gallery CoEdit Collection.

“No” is a 2012 internationally co-produced drama film directed by Pablo Larraín. The film is based on the unpublished play “El Plebiscite”, written by Antonio Skármeta. Mexican actor Gael García Bernal plays René, an in-demand advertising man working in Chile in the late 1980s. The film captures the historical moment of advertising tactics in political campaigns as in the October 5, 1988 plebiscite, which was a national referendum held to determine whether Chile’s President, Augusto Pinochet, should extend his term for another eight years. The “No” side won with nearly 56% of the vote, thus ending his 16 1/2 years of dictatorial rule.

At the 85th Academy Awards the film was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar
