Photography and the "Middle Voice"The English Language has no "Middle Voice".
[An Ancient Greek grammatical construction]
- Active voice - I do all the action
[predominant voice in English]
- Passive voice - All the action is done to me
[predominant voice in Cree]
- Middle Voice - Two or more people act interactively
[predominant voice in photography]
We do much of our life interactively, we just can't talk about it very well in English.
I believe God calls us into an interactive life with each other and with Himself.
Fortunately, interactive life can be spoken of easily through photographs.
This section of my site is my research workshop. This page sits on my browser as my "Home" page so I can get right down to my research work fast when I go onto the net. As I do much of my work directly on-line, this site is a bit of a work in progress.
I am a very curious person, unabashedly autodidactic (self-taught) in some areas of my life, under disciplined instruction in others. I find the wealth of information resources on the Net, and in the world's various libraries and databases a wonderful treasury of material. In the work of re-presenting /interpreting people's contexts and situations, the research helps me in the five approaches I use (singly or in combination):
The "Projects", referred to above, are tools and results of research, assembled and displayed for more efficient transfer to specific individuals (by URL's) usually for very specific purposes. As I tend to recycle such information, putting it on a web site makes it easy for me to refer others to the same information later if needed. You are certainly welcome to browse around if you find anything of interest, and contact me if you would like to ask about something that you see here.
- I make and adapt data-management tools (for the helping professions).
- I do life photographically.
- I push people out of ditches.
- I fill the barrel through "info-chase" (and live out of the overflow).
- I animate communities.
However, owing to the "push-site" rather than "pull-site" purpose of this site, you may want to bookmark anything you might like to return to, because there are few "navigation" tools to locate it again. Thank you.
