A Hammer Has Two Ends

Frank Chimero is changing his focus from image-making to writing for his book:

A hammer has two ends: one to drive the nail, another to remove it. One can not use both ends at the same time. I believe the relationship between images and text is much like this, especially for those of us who make both. Writing and image-making intermingle and sometimes negate one another in the name of progress. For those that I know that seriously pursue both, the relationship between the word-work and the image-work is tidal. I will always make images, but for now I need to use the other end of my hammer, because there is a thorn that needs to be pried out of my side and a story that needs to be told that doesn’t leave much room for images.
