Storytelling

January 26, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

One of the most inspiring aspects of photography is how it can tell a story in one frame.  It can communicate a sense of place, a mood, a moment, an emotion.  For the viewer and the photographer it can conjure up a memory that would be completely different from each other.  For the photographer it would be the experience they had making the image - the place, time, who they may have been with, possibly the emotion of the subject let alone the emotion they may have had while being in that moment.  As a photographer capturing the "precise moment" is thrilling.  

For the viewer the same thing can happen - even though they were not in that moment of the image - the image has the chance to speak to them in a way that recalls a moment they may have had similar or the image reminds them of a place, mood, moment or emotion they experienced.  Either way there is a communication between the image maker and image viewer.  The potential of two strangers, possibly worlds apart being able to share a moment.

This is why I'm an image maker.
