There are those rare moments, in today’s age of mass marketing and digital media bombarding, that you run across something that sincerely speaks to you. You initially inspect it with a grain of salt, suspecting it to be another targeted precision marketing piece that sniffed you through your Google searches and web browsing. But then, you take a closer look, and the same way a beautiful object, a piece of art, or a breathtaking location touches your senses, something magical pops out of your computer screen and speaks to you.
In Cale Glendening’s ‘Blood & Oil’, the camera captures camaraderie, art, nature, beautiful lines, alluring lights, and soul machines. Pablo Picasso once said “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”. You can sense that Cale is giving pieces of him away through his lens, and by doing that, he speaks to many of us.
