I have an article in the latest issue of Inspired Eye. It is a fabulous street photography magazine and it is always inspiring. I highly recommend it. Thanks to Don and Olivier!
The Shoot New York City blog has a new member. I will continue this blog as usual and my Curious Frame blog will now be posted here as well.
If you’re not familiar with Curious Frame, it is where I write about photography.
“In a world that is overpopulated with images, Curious Frame is where I share my thoughts on photography and it is always about ‘seeing with new eyes’.“
The action doesn’t stop.
But a photo desires to freeze time in a way that it can be remembered.
If we didn’t pause to look and shoot, life would still move on.
A photograph exists as a memory of a time that no longer exists.
My photos are a record that I was here.
It is what I do with my time.
Photography is a facsimile.
It is a miniature view of a much larger picture.
Even a 360 degree photos misses more than it captures.
It represents the fleeting moments in life.
Truth resides in photography only as much as the person who took it believed it was worth shooting it.
Truth in photography exists when the viewer can relate to the image that is represented in a photo.
I am my photographs and my photographs are me.
You can’t really separate the two.
So obviously there’s no objectivity!
The idea that photography can represent truth, also means it can represent lies. And everything in between.
If you ask me how long it took to make a single photo, my answer would be, my entire life. You can’t decide to pull something out of context.
A photo always has a context, even when it is not obvious or conscious.
Photography involves the whole being.
