Photography reveals

It is impossible to stand outside of yourself and create an image. Photography always reveals something about the photographer.

An image is a reflection of the person making it. It is personal. The more that you work on your image making, the more your style becomes apparent.

Photography is like a language. It is capable of layers of meaning in a single image. It’s like poetry. Rich with possibilities.

When an image is successful, it can have multiple meanings. Each viewer brings to a photo their own story. Their interpretation.

The beauty of any artistic pursuit is that it is never-ending. One image by itself is like a page in a book. An artist strives for a body of work that represents their vision.
