4.13.11 Via Crucis – Station One

Via Crucis
Jesus is condemned to death

The images from my work which form the collection of “Via Crucis, A Photographer Before the Cross,” have emerged over the past decade.When I first began 10 years ago, I spent the first 3 months walking back and forth below the Keystone bridge, never more than 80 paces. The stones said, “Stop, stay, listen.” Now ten years on, they are saying, “Stop sooner, stay longer, listen deeply.”

And the first 30 steps, which I had bypassed so often, into the quarry, become a throughway to my soul. The First Station image is grounded by a foreground of those who condemn, looking back out and over at a Jesus prefigured toward his crucifixion.
