Alex became a regular visitor of Lyle, Dusti and myself when he was director of the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, MS. At once my father's generous character and "Jewish Mother's" nature led to Alex being well fed at either Dusti's or Lyle's table on numerous occasions and to be regaled by Lyle's stories and a shared love of discussion and "Southern Trash Talkin'" as Col. Jonathan Williams oft referred to it.
I became well acquainted with Alex during that time, though my visits home from abroad made them less frequent but no less enjoyable. Over the years our communication has met with that same infrequency. Something Lyle often referred to as one's inability to remain written to. Meaning in the parlance of the correspondent, a recipient's tendency to fail to co-respond in kind or in a timely manner. That is something of an affliction of mine and is no fault of Alex's.
To the point of this posting. I have visited today Alex's photography site and I have thoroughly enjoyed his images. They are well crafted, well seen and stand as sure testimonial of his skill as an image maker and I wholeheartedly encourage all who read this post to visit his site and see for yourselves.
