My river/photographer friend Teresa Tamura recently lent me her copy of "the ongoing moment" by Geoff Dyer. The next couple posts will most likely be reflections and observations as I make my way through the book. If you are in Missoula Mt. this fall be sure and visit Teresa's show on the Minidoka Internment camps, titled "Minidoka Memories."

"Explaining her working methods (Dorothea) Lange commented that there are 'people who are garrulous and wear their heart on their sleeve and tell you everything, that's one kind of person; but the fellow who's hiding behind a tree, and hoping you don't see him, is the fellow you'd better find out about.' The most eloquent testimony, in other words, may come from those most reluctant to give it."

And here is the rest of it.
