Today I'm appreciating the work of Oakland, CA based artist Bret Amory and his series "Waiting", which "depicts the urban individual's yearning for presence and the seaming impossibility of attaining it". Begun in 2001 while Amory was still in school, the "Waiting" series has since evolved into something truly breathtaking. A quick stop by Amory's website is worth your time as it demonstrates wonderfully the evolution of not only the series, but the growth of the artist as an individual.

"I have developed favored motifs in the series, a kind of visual music, such as repetition of a human image, to show not only the passage of time but of the human being through it". Brett Amory
