we like to believe there is a common vision which the photograph
cannot ere from, there
is an instinct of mistrust in this; we all know that Zanetta's view
of the world is fortunately different than Harry's. When I temporarily
lost most of my sight in 1969, I began to take photographs with
my ears. I was experiencing a new way
of seeing, photographing all things sudden and
disconnected. What was this means of expression
with a camera? I think of it as collecting the iconography
of "Spacial Time".
The result is photo-iconography
that presents twenty first century "tapestries", the collision of
photography, the power of Zen and Spacial Time . Where do I feel
most at home? Technologically, the 21st / 22nd Century. Sensorically,
the middle ages!
RON EDEN'S PHOTO-ICONOGRAPHY
"Ron Eden's photographs
are overtures in acoustic space as opposed to visual space..." Professor
Harley Parker Associate, Centre for Culture and Technology, Toronto
Tom Wolfe Author,

and Sale and private collections worldwide.
Ron, what is iconography?
It's really using photography in a different way to the way it's usually
It is using it for a kind of creative interplay rather than as mere
illustration. Of course, once you use photography differently you
start using the camera differently.
How did you use it differently?
Like an Abstract Expressionist uses a paint-brush.
