I have long found that my work is most meaningful to me as an expression of my life and my relationships with the world. Without such relationships, aesthetics alone, while enjoyable to view at times, do not move me to create. In creating I need more than just beauty; I need a story—a good one—and I need to be a character in that story. And my story unfolds here. –Guy Tal
It’s not about the view along the river; it’s about this particular view. I am comfortable in this place where I walk, stop to chat with people and watch fisherman along the riverbank. I want to immerse myself in this place, to interact with it, to feel at home. In this way, the pictures I make matter.
