In Chama, a small town I visited in New Mexico as a student in Professor
Calisch's photography course, I met a wood sculptor who did his work
with a chainsaw.
I tried to focus on his attention to detail and the concentrated look in
his eye. I incorporated some of his finished pieces to show that this
was a work in progress—the unsculpted block of wood closest to him will
become the already completed Virgin Mary piece in the foreground.
