Full disclosure: This is an unmitigated plug by an unapologetic fan.
The photographer Aric Mayer is a dowser. Like a man with a willow branch searching out sweetwater he finds and captures the shot at the just moment it runs clear and pure. Potable; pellucid; powerful.
I’m lucky enough to live with two of his pieces -- Moon, Eureka Valley and Beach, Mojacar. They’re residents here; they breathe life into the room.
But don’t take my word for it: read a little bit more about the work he did for the Wall Street Journal down in New Orleans after Katrina blew through, and then take a look for yourself, at aricmayerstudios.com.
