Interview with Richard B ChauDavis

Can you share Steve Waller's poem about your book
Yes! Here it is:

Fragments of Unforgettable Moments
By Steve Waller
[A tribute to Richard ChauDavis’s Mostly Square Artifacts 2013]
Sometimes my memories are as crystal clear as the moment they happened
as if the video is still on record
or the film is still developing, becoming even more vivid with time (Anatomy, Being Male).
Sometimes I can recall almost every detail, yet I couldn’t say for sure
as a witness in a court of law
if it was a mole or a freckle on her naked back (Oofla).
Sometimes the memories are in motion ( Workout, Splits)
and it’s a mixed up blur (I Am Happy…, Happy People)
or is it my brain can’t decide what really happened
and presents impossible amalgams (Bridgett and Bridgett 2)?
Sometimes only a single striking element stands out
The tongue!
like a gold nugget memory in my brain pan
the very essence of what makes the memory unforgettable (Clowning Around).
More and more often
I’m finding the memories are fading
until there’s only disintegrating fragments (Two Friends, Three of Us)
an echo of a thought (Whisper)
or little more than a general concept remaining (Woman Holding Cantaloupe)
slipping away into crumpled lost ideas even though I struggle to hold on to that beautiful moment (Thinking).
All the more reason to make more
Unforgettable moments! (Fate)
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Cup of tea, interesting piece that I am working on. I try to leave myself something easy to do in the morning so that I can get rolling...
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Painting, taking pictures, selling paint,.. ah family too...
Describe your desk
Messy when I am not working.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I miss show catalogs, I enjoy having a collection of work in one volume. I think E books should cause a resurgence. The price is right, they fit in the modern library and it allows a fuller understanding of the artists work.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to reach out to a wider audience in an affordable manner
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting it right.
What do your fans mean to you?
Feedback, I learn by hearing their perspective and seeing through their eyes. Support, them paying me for my work gives me more time to work.
Who are your favorite authors?
Terry Pratchett, Alan Campbell, David Brin, Tamora Pierce...are a few of my favorite

Mostly Square Artifacts 2013
Price: $8.95 USD. Words: 4,610. Language: English. Published: March 25, 2014. Categories: Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Photography - Photo books
At the start of 2013 I started the series of 27 works shown in this book. I resolved to create artifacts with nothing being precious. The images are crumpled, torn, sliced, painted, sanded, dissolved and then carefully preserved. Each work made into a rescued artifact full of scars, personality, and texture. Subject matter and images involve nudity, sexuality and (to be fair) other things.
