Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy....

Link to Goldsworthy's Art
   Andy Goldsworthy is a British sculptor, photographer, and environmental activist.  He lives and works in Scotland but he has created his incredible installations all over the world.  His work is most often temporary, meant to dissolve, melt, blow away and otherwise return to the landscape from which it was created leaving only his photographs as evidence they ever existed at all.

   There are many lovely moments in the video I've attached to this post but I especially love his statement that he can begin his work once he has "shaken hands" with the landscape...a man after my own heart!

   Goldworthy's intimate caress of the landscape is an inspiration for every contemplative photographer.  Be sure to check out his work with the link below the image...be prepared to be amazed!
