This image pays homage to one of my most influential photographers, Oliver Gagliani. My favorite black and white photo is Oliver's White Door. Doors represent passage, mystery, ambivalence, choices, unknown, and a host of other metaphors. The weathered wood signifies the past, a time forgotten, a fading memory. The two together represent a place where time has been abandoned.
