  1. Back To Pool — I like that it asks more questions than gives answers.

    Hog and Gun . Those seconds between the transformation from breathing pig to sustaining pork are heavy. This picture got it.

  3. Sunday Morn. The various elements just sing for me – the door open (welcoming); the inscription on the door (a sense of place); the ‘donated by’ on the glass behind (saying that people care), the wheelchair for those needing help; and the empty chair beside that relaxed but imposing character, makes me feel I could walk in there, sit down and be swept off in a wave of community. It is a beautiful image.

    beautiful, mysterious, and there’s a timelessness to this image that I like a lot

    thanks for the photographs! great to see all of them,

    I like the hands, the careful figures, the little spiral notebook. . . .

    I like the overall layout: the collection of three (2 chairs and a walker), the quiet dignity of an elderly Miss Sarah and juxtaposition of her orthopedic shoes and stylish hat, the flat field and vertical trees in the background,and the white in the foreground and the dark in the background. I love the photo.

  7. Gerry Gomez says:

    “Church Bathroom 2006″ The sacred and the profane captured like I have never seen before. I imagine that juxtaposition is the most unique find, ever.

  8. Thanks so much for sharing Sarah Hoskin’s work! Sarah, you have so many fantastic images in this series. The image titled “Pulling Leaves/ Stripping” gave me pause – a timeless image of the mundane nature of skilled, repetitive tasks & hard, hard work. The more I look at this image the more I want to know the subject’s daydreams, imaginings & stream of thoughts woven into those leaves on the table…

    Hog in Tub: This photo has always spoken to me as it is a look into an old tradition passing knowledge from one generation to the next. Knowing some of the individuals in this series and seeing the young men in a setting that they are proud to be a part of with the elders of their community. The fact that this is a something that few outsiders are allowed to experience makes it extra special. Sarah’s photos take us to the inside of a long standing rite of passage in the cold early morning. The etherial sense of this photo is intoxicating. We are so fortunate that Sarah has captured these moments for future generations!

    The Robe is my favorite image from the series. The image contains beautiful contrast in the whiteness of the robe, door, and window frame against the darkness of the brick. I also love the stillness in the image that belies the implication of excitement and human presence, just missed by the camera, but captured in the wreath on the door, knocked slightly off centered, and the still dripping robe.

  11. Cindy Shepherd says:

    Mac is an amazing photo. It makes me feeling like we’re seeing this aged man up close and the child he once was right behind him. That childhood is kind of blurry to Mac now, but it’s still there in his mind and it’s still part of who he is.

    Collection | 2004.
    I like the intimacy of this shot.
