Photography as Communication

image72

We are constantly surrounded by both interesting people and natural beauty, sometimes instantaneously. I use my camera to capture both what I see and what I feel - all at the same time. 

Photography provides a channel for which to dive into a realm that is rarely visited by most people. That realm is our own reality. This reality that photography presents can breath life into an image in our own way. 

We know that photographs are images frozen in time and space, but it is our own fascination with that very medium which brings to an image our way of experiencing the world around us. 

Photography is communication, but always going both ways - outside and inside. We see it happening outside and we feel it inside. We then bring it from the inside and create a photograph of it. 

This is truly one of the most spontaneous forms of communication available - one which can be captured and then brought forth for all to experience. That is the beauty of photography!
