A Curious Question To / Ian Kline

What do you think about when you look at this photo you took?

The feeling of stumbling upon something that has always been there waiting to be looked at under a new light in a new time.
I think about being younger and spending weekends at my dads house. Wandering around this house that I would only be at every other weekend. Finding things in the basement that my Dad would keep for some reason even though they probably didn’t have any practical use anymore. It’s not like a hoarding situation but more of a collection of things in hope that by having them they would be needed for some project later on; which kind of relates back to my photographic practice of making, collecting, and sitting on images. The photograph also reminds me of a more recent event of recovering from a knee surgery, crutching around my dads house, finding this computer set up placed by itself in the musty basement, and trying to set up lights and a 4×5 before the painkillers wore off and my knee started to hurt again. It’s kind of funny; I think I get a lot of inspiration from my dad’s house.

Do you think the planet will be a better place with less humans on it?

The problems of climate change, disruption to essential ecosystems, species extinction, and conflicts between states and tribes threaten the quality of life for even the richest nations and put into question our long term survival. All of this compounded by growing numbers of people on earth. I think there is no question that for future generations, life on earth and what we know as “nature” will be very different from what it is today. We have to question how much we value the earth’s beauty and diversity, its natural systems, and what kind of world we want for the future.
