The hammer is used to destroy and build, in the art parlance, to murder and create. For me, the hammer is vital because I am in continually tearing things apart and rebuilding. If we apply this metaphor to our lives, it's also symbolic of how we live. Of all the things I do, I get the most satisfaction using the hammer; it connects me to my world.

The camera is a device I use to connect to the world around me.

The pen is my way to communicate
. I still like to write letters in longhand. The act of taking the pen and scribing the letters is remarkable. It's very personal and private.

in case:
Hammer with wooden handle, forged steel head and electrician's tape, 14"
M6 Leica camera with strap and 28 mm lens, 3" x 6.5"
Blue fountain pen, 6"
