Ancient Walls, Windows And Doors

Tucson, AZ - Joe Kozlowski, Tucson area photographer, has added a number of images from his "Ancient Walls, Windows and Doors" series to his on-line gallery offering. The images focus on the ruin of Chaco Canyon, and Aztec, New Mexico, and Mesa Verde, Colorado.

Asked about the images, Joe said, "My fascination with walls, windows and doors originates in their symbolism (at least for me). Walls are the separation between here and there; between one place and another another place; between inside and outside ... between one person and another. Windows and doors are the connection between here and there ... and metaphorically, the connection points between people."
