Photography is not film, it is not painting, it is not literature. It is at its best describing things, showing us what things look like, how a camera sees at a given moment in time. That is its essence and its strength. Truthfulness to the subject should be expected in photography. Without that, photography loses its essence, its reason to be. These boundaries form a framework and discipline in which I feel I can work effectively. It keeps my approach simple while still allowing for endless possibilities that inspire and drive me to capture the world around me.
