From: Ryan Crum 
Subject: Thank You

My name is Ryan Crum and I am writing to you from the University of
Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas.  I am originally from Bloomington,
Minnesota.  This past year I finally was able to date a friend of mine
whom I was in love with for at least five years.  She took a trip to
Europe and upon returning, broke things off with me.  I later found out
that she cheated on me in Europe.  I have been looking for words to
express my feelings and these pictures and words are more than I can
say.  I am a photographer myself and I love your work.  Thank you for
what you have done here.  You have helped my release some of my ghosts.

I really enjoyed your site.  Especially "pictures of you".  I was surfing the 
web for pictures for story I was telling, and I was looking for shots to match 
some poetry by Sylvia Plath (ariel)  It was getting to the point where all the 
art was the the same.  A nude in the grass.  A nude on the beach. Nothing told 
a story.  Then I stumbled on to your site, and I was really moved.  You told a 
great story, using real photographs.  Not a staged retouched compostition of 
'art'. Thanks for the experience.  When I learned that Jennifer left for 
Mexico, heard the end of the song, and saw the final photo, I was holding back 
the tears.

 I particularly enjoyed the music.  Who did "Pictures Of You"?

          are semi-professional. I particularly like your literary 
          quotes accompanying each. Here are two more you might like -

   Pictures of You was a powerful piece.  I didn't expect to be 
          moved by it ("great, pictures of someone who left this guy, 
          big deal") but by the end you had won me over.  Great work.
          Masques seemed to be less focused, therefore less effective.  
          I'd love to hear about it when you put more work up.

Subject:  First Book About Jennifer

I really appreciated your effort and need to record the moments in your
relationship.  I was doing the same with my last relationship (poetry has
been the main vehicle for expression for me and recently photography
has begun to overtake it).  I was taking pictures of him and writing about
the relationship always hoping that I would be able to discover something
more about him/about me, maybe something I had missed earlier.  I kept
writing and developing the pictures thinking I would make a book.  When
the relationship ended I wrote what I thought was the conclusion (the
whole story to that point was written from the woman's perspective) but
then I had this idea to write what it was like for "him".  That was more
difficult.  I have put the whole thing aside for now...

Anyway,  I relate to what you have done and I like the photographs.  I
will go and look at your second book now.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts publicly.

        No one can ever understand the relationship between other people.  The 
best I've ever been able to do is to project my own memories onto other 
people's external events.  Your pictures of Jennifer in part I are 
unusually revealing of the relationship behind them.  I have a relationship 
with a Jennifer as well, and she also left me to study abroad, in France 
and in Massachusetts (which is not quite as abroad, but still not nearby). 
 I was particularly moved by a few of the smiles you photographed.  They 
are among the most honest smiles I've seen, and they remind me of sharing 
such smiles.  Keep up the good work, and best wishes for part III.

Citizen Kane,

I think Citizen Kane's pictures and information was delightful . . .
There's a new wind blowing on Netscape.
Citizen Kane is the creator of that new wind blowing.
He adds a refreshing style of philosophy with humor.
I trully enjoyed viewing his work.
I hope to come across it again very soon.
To those wondering about Citizen Kane's work, it is wonderful.
He is imaginative and quite smart and dandy with his words.

First of all, due to technical difficulties this message is not from weir@utkvx.utk.edu, but from hickman@utkvx.utk.edu instead. Sorry. Feel free to publish.

My name is Nicole and today I was lucky enough to find you crawling across my screen. I am in the process of creating my own homepage so I am always looking for new ideas. While I was browsing through an art gallery in Yahoo I came across your homepage. I have been writing for many years myself and it isn't often that I come across someone who breathes with the same breath as I do. Your work melted me to my chair.

Thanks for a wonderful afternoon. Maybe we can do it again sometime.

Subject: Re: pic

your web page is delightful...
i liked the faint glow around
the woman in the picture "tamara"
and your poetry reflects a sincere,
somewhat sad romantic spirit.

i see also that you have a love for
80s synthpop...not many people own
so much of the clash or the human
league any more...(i have a soft spot
in my heart for it as well, which
i keep hidden from my industrial
friends). and i noticed chopin's
nocturnes in there somewhere...
very nice.

Hullo, I love your idea of posting a new wav file every weel. I have just one question, where (or maybe when) is "Until the End of the World?" I have gotten a great version of "Love is Blindness", but I am interested in other songs. You are probably busy with some other work, the main reason my web page falls into disarray, so I don't want to bust your stones. Just to let you know that there is at least one person who is very interested in this page. Keep it up!

I applaud your effort. It is nice to see such an honest sharing of emotion so deep and pure.

My friend, just remember that the human species inherited a gift to love so deeply, and we never seem to lose this ability. Cherish this gift, and never fear it, for it perhaps is the one thing that will follow us until our last breath.

I am also sure that another lady will surely deeply appreciate the gift you have to offer. Don't lose faith...

Hi. I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for creating such a beautiful visual monument. I was in a similar situation. She was only here on a student visa and when she graduated, she had to return to her native Hong Kong. I knew that I'd never see her again when she left. I spent the last few weeks that she was here taking countless photos of her as I knew that they would be all I'd have left after she was gone besides a giant void in my chest where my heart used to be. She's gone, I've been with someone else for a couple of years and I'm sure she has too. Every so often when Susan's at work I take out my box of pictures and relive what I felt years ago. It's nice to know that I'm not alone. Thanks again, Scott

Hi there,

Just a short note, to congratulate you with your Site. As chief of Production of Belgium's premium Internet Publishers, manager of the Belgium Virtual Photogallery and the son of a great photographer, I enjoyed my visit to your site. I do not appreciate all pics in the site (some of them are really no better than the average holiday pic), others on the other hand are just wonderful (I think you should devote yourslef to BW-pics). Your comments to the pics are very nice (they even charmed me :) -

Funny because some of the pictures were funny (in a good way!). And funny in the that it amazing what pictures (even of someone you don't even know) can provoke such emotions. If you would like to use this paragraph go right ahead! Or you could put them together if you'd like. Marc Almond (I love the CD "The Stars We Are"), you are the only other person that I know who owns this CD. Big Audio Dynamite (who I was suppose to see in concert at the end of July, but they canceled their show! Really ticked me off =( Kate Bush, Cowboy Junkies (Blue Moon Revisited still makes me cry), Depeche Mode, Dire Straits, DiVinyls, Enigma, Enya, Erasure (excellent in concert), Flock of Seagulls, Peter Gabriel, The Cure Gene Loves Jezebel, Human League, Indigo Girls, INXS, Ministry, Pet Shop Boys, Siouxsuis and the Banshees, Cat Stevens, SuperTramp, 10,00 Maniacs, The The, Tears for Fears, U2, and the Violent Femmes. I only listed the groups but for most of these groups I own almost all of their CD's. Your welcome for the compliment, you deserved it!

I help design the web gallery Mythago, and we've included a link to Pictures of You in the Offsite section of our gallery.
