This print was included in the exhibition Larry Wiese: Recall at the wallspace Gallery, Seattle (August 5 - August 30, 2008).

"It is said that the true artist is one who sees what others do not and then make it visible. Larry Wiese understands what it means to be an artist. He lives it, and it is evident in his photographs. So much of photography these days is repetitious and unoriginal, even codified--what is acceptable subject material, how it is supposed to look. And then you come across the photography of Larry Wiese - powerfully seen yet quiet. His images whisper rather than shout. And in each photograph one has the haunting feeling that you are on the edge of hearing a great cosmic secret, of seeing a mystery unfold. He sees what others do not, but it is even more than that. What sets Larry's work apart and makes him a true artist is not what he sees but how he sees. He gives us new eyes. And this is the highest form of artistry."
