Placerita Canyon Cascade

(Originally published in Singular Images, 05/31/07)…Minor White published the text for Octave of Prayer as an Aperture publication in 1972 concurrent with an exhibit of the same name at MIT. Worth reading if you can find a copy. I have been re-reading my tattered copy (a “HURT” book to begin with, better price at the time) again. More thoughts to share about this later….

Best regards, Doug Stockdale

(Update 10/7/08) My photograph Placerita Canyon Cascade, above, was created within the concept of equivalents as explained by Minor White.
