His photographs tread lightly in between the present state, and a blurred memory. I often wonder while looking at his work, “would this moment exist if it was not witnessed?” Where we are now, is only relative with relation to where we have been before, Doug Beasley’s new book is that visual realization. Sublimely edited along the ebb and flow of life, his photographs request your presence. For if you fail to see, to understand, and acknowledge them, their shadows of existence have still been forever cast.
Congratulations Doug, there is no artist more deserving of this incredible accomplishment!!
