I love taking pictures. I'm not in any way skilled at it, but I do have a sincere appreciation for those individuals who can take a great picture. Dennis Chamberlin is one of those individuals. His collection Screen Culture is currently showing at Kirkwood in Cedar Rapids, but you can also view it online here. My favorite is the first one in that gallery entitled Gameboy. Instead of settling into bed with a book, this little boy is huddled in the dark with his Gameboy. I get such a sense of love from the boy for that little piece of plastic and wires. While my immediate reaction is to lament that the gadget has taken the place of the book, I also wonder if maybe I'm just an old fashioned foolish man who won't accept that times have changed.
