The End of the Day

I’m very fond of this photography because it was a considered choice. I saw the people on the hill, the tree and I was aware of the backlight from the setting sun.

Socially Concerned Photography

“Socially concerned photographers assume that their work can convey some kind of stable meaning, can reveal truth. But partly because the photograph is, always, an object in a context, this meaning is bound to drain away; that is, the context which shapes whatever immediate—in particular, political—uses the photograph may have is inevitably succeeded by contexts in which such uses are weakened and become progressively less relevant.”

3×3 Rainy Windows

There’s something appealing about the myriad tiny lenses created by waterdrops on a pane of glass.  

Television vs Photography

Photographs may be more memorable than moving images, because they are a neat slice of time, not a flow. Television is a stream of underselected images, each of which cancels its predecessor. Each still photograph is a privileged moment, turned into a slim object that one can keep and look at again. Susan Sontag On Photography, 1979

Why take photos?

I take photographs to see what the world looks like, photographed. – Garry Winogrand
