I’ve always thought that Californians are so uninhibited because their grandparents don’t live down the street.~Martha Murphy, Pass Christian, Mississippi

The above quote is one that I've been thinking about since viewing
Laura Calfee's "Of a Place" photographs. I'm also in love with her new work- wonderful, wonderful still life vignettes.


  1. Well, as a California transplant from the NE who grew up with her Grandma across the country, I can say that is probably very true in my case! =-) I can't even imagine what it would have been like to have had to explain myself to her many times in my life...Great quote! (I would have glady done the explaining,though, if I could have had her nearby...~g~)

  2. As much as I find family folklore interesting there is an uneasiness in the photographs for me. I couldn't quite identify what it is though.


Good to hear from you!
