1997 GA Williams, a retired firefighter and decorated Vietnam
war veteran from NYC had taken the "BLACK
CHERUB" photo in front of a church in
Northampton, MA. The photo had been seen by Kaolin, a medium,
who was convinced the photograph indicated he was in need
of urgent heart care. Mr. Williams saw his physician and requested
several tests so he could be certain he was in good health.
The results of those tests indicated that his Aortic Valve
was 7 cm dilated so he was taken to a hospital and operated
on several days later.
While recovering from open heart surgery George began to take
photographs of cloud formations. Like
photo which is # 1 in the Photo Section, the photographs on
the site were taken by Mr. Williams.
When he takes a photograph he does not see what we see once the film has been developed. He gets a "feeling" and takes the shot. The most common questions
we have been asked is what kind of camera does he use? He uses many kinds of
cameras from newly bought cameras to disposable and even second-hand cameras.
The cost or year of the camera is irrelevant, yet 35 mm is the most common feature among them.
In the beginning the photographs had personal relevance in
our lives. They seemed to be in sync with events that mattered
to us within our family. Several years later they took on
a broader significance. As in the case of "TSUNAMI
CHILD" and "KATRINA"
as those pictures were taken and developed within a month
of those tragic events.
