The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

It should be obvious that this image is made up of multiple images. I always admired those who do thought-provoking composites such as Maggie Taylor, Dominic Rouse, and my friend Tony Williams. I admire the forethought and synergy of such work, oftentimes taking us to surrealistic places. This image is a crude and straightforward attempt to show dominance over Native Americans. However, the strange element here is the guy on the horse looks a lot like Emiliano Zapata. Someday, I hope to find the patience to create composites.
