The Meaning of Photography:
I love creating Photographs.
Yes, you read that right, I don’t take a Photograph, I create them.
What does that mean?
It simply means, any image I choose to create first begins when my eye, mind and heart connect with a moment, a scene or a person.
This is the catalyst where my ❤️ skips a beat.
The conversation begins; “WOW, there’s the possibility of a great image. If you ever walk the streets with me, you might hear me say these words.
I stop and start to investigate that possibility, it doesn’t take long. My mind works quickly so as not to loose the feeling and the moment.
Yesterday, l met a lovely couple in Windsor - June and Jack.
Had a delightful conversation with them. I said the magic words, “may I take your photograph”. June made me laugh, she said, “your camera might not work again after” to which I replied, “if it doesn’t, I will hold you entirely responsible”. She laughed.
This was a magic moment; a created image, based on a short interaction, charming conversation and an exchange of humanity.
When she saw the image on the back of my camera, she said “can you print it for me”?
I said it would be my pleasure.
The meaning of my Photography is all about capturing our humanity in the moment, causing a conversation.
My images, I hope, cause people to stop, think and feel.❤️
In the case of June and Jack, they will receives a print with compliment in the post.
