Month: March, 2016



If you’re lucky enough to have something magical in happening in front of your camera, don’t let it go. Keep shooting until the light fades, the magic evaporates or you or your subject have to leave.

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.

 Brooks Atkinson – 1951


Flemish towns to avoid (151)

As the language or vocabulary of photography has been extended, the emphasis of meaning has shifted, shifted from what the world looks like to what we feel about the world and what we want the world to mean.
