Scott Indermaur recently completed a photo series now on display at the Unity Church, 900 Madeline Lane. He asked people to fill a box with something that defined their spirit and then took portraits of them with their boxes. Other photographs are on display at his studio, 123 E. Eighth St.
Larry Carter: "(Calico) lives in the moment, indeed, knows no place but the moment. This is the place where split-second decisions are made that decide who we really are, where risks are very real, where rewards are beyond anything we had previously imagined."
Whitney Attebury: "My mother helped me grow in life, but my father hurt me when he left."
Jon Cross: "Texas, Nature and Buddha - three things that keep me grounded and bring me peace and comfort. Included with the box are personal items I've collected over the years that serve as a constant reminder to maintain my connection with nature and God."
Mark Zwahl: "My box contained sand and the bloom of a redbud tree. The sand represents the idea that everything is temporary and in a state of transformation - that at any given moment I am simply in between what I was and what I am about to become."
Darlene Strickland: "My connection to the Divine is discerned as an inner presence ... creation whispers and awakens in me. There is a fire that fuels me with passion for being ... assuring me of my connection to the One eternal flame."
Kimberly Gerlach: "The small fern inside the box represents my belief that in life, we are all one with nature, and in death, we will return to nature. The spools of thread outside the box represent my connection to those nearest me. The spools on the inside of the box represent my connection to self. All the spools of thread are knotted and pulled from the limbs of the fern ... illustrating the tension involved in my need to tend and mend those around me as well as my internal struggle to understand and repair myself."
