DOORS BY GREGORY NORRIS
My love of doors came as a total shock to me. I really had no idea that I would be so taken with them until I was on my first really long trip. I was in Yangzhou, China at the start of a 2 month journey in China. I was outside a Buddist temple and thought that the door was amazing. I looked at it through my lens and noticed how it just popped. I didn’t see a door but I saw history. I saw something that was old but so sturdy it had lasted in that doorway longer than the United States had been a country. When I look at doors that’s what I see. What got them to where they are. My next extended trip to Italy cemented my love of doors while I was in Venice. I had to stop myself from stopping at all the doors that just cried out to me. If I had to pinpoint one thing it is about them that intrigues me so much, it would be the question “What is the story behind this doors?”. Physically and historically.
