Barter Town

In downtown Wilmington NC there is a construction area surrounded by a fence. On this fence people have hung keys and while taking shots of the keys I found this bike sprocket. I don't know what the artist was trying to say but it was an interesting scene.

It is estimated that within the two hundred independent countries of the world there are 6800 different spoken languages, creating a huge expanse of language barriers, hand signals and lost translations. However, within this mass of worldwide confusion, pictures and photography can still be understood universally. Maybe it's a clich� that picture can (with no specified language) speak a thousand words to a thousand different people but we all know its true. We now have international symbols to explain that we can walk or don't walk, a hospital is near, or the airport is in this direction. I find this idea of global understanding deeply fascinating and it is one reason among many which has propelled me towards the study and the art of photography.

I was always very interested in the things around me, I remember on the elementary school bus just looking at the scenery and the things of interest that were outside of the school bus window. Photography to me is an extension of that interest in the things around me. I think I sometimes see things differently than others, or maybe I just take more time to see what is in front of me.

In my photos I try to tell a story and then translate that story through the composition of that photo. I find this quote by Elliott Erwitt expresses my feelings about by photography.

�To me, photography is an art of observation. It�s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place� I�ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.� � Elliott Erwitt

I would only add to this statement is that it is also how others see and feel about what your trying to say.

I am constantly uploading my art and placing them in my gallery. Look for them in http:\, they can also be found at Thank you for taking the time to view my work, if you have any questions please contact me at the e-mail request button found on this site. If you like my photos but want any one of them in a different size please e-mail me and I'll make every attempt to put it in my artwork as soon as possible. Thanks again Laurence Phipps Photography.
