Picture of the Week – 5/28/19

Our city has many hidden gems like this Cottage Hill alcove that Katie spotted recently. It’s the kind of detail that any one of us might walk or drive right by, maybe while looking at our phones. Rob Walker’s new book The Art of Noticing opens with a quotation from Susan Sontag urging us to see, as Katie does here, what’s in front of us:

“Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. It’s all about taking in as much of what’s out there as you can, and not letting the excuses and the dreariness of some of the obligations you’ll soon be incurring narrow your lives. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”

Katie Pollock is a photographer who tries to capture the startling beauty of the natural and human-made world in a way that also captures the imagination of her audience. She uses photographs to communicate a sense of place and to convey a feeling of humanity’s connection to the world. Katie is an Alabama native, though her photos encompass many parts of the US as well as abroad. You can see her art on Instagram @katiepollockart.
