you’re not really initiated…


…you’re not really initiated until your eyes are redder than your lips

While Don Kirby was working on his Wheatcountry images he photographed a now-deserted schoolhouse and became fascinated by the generations of graffiti scrawled upon its walls. As is so often the case, some of the most meaningful comments in — and on — life are to found in places where they are not expected. Kirby’s black-and-white photographs immortalize pearls of profundity that would more usually inspire removal than recording: the book’s title, for example, or the equally delicious “There have been no dragons in my life, only spiders and girls…I could have coped with dragons.”
