Fragments and memories 19

Fragment: On seeing

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

  1. Love the quote matt, and your images are fine examples.
    “finding something interesting in an ordinary place”–this to me is the essence of poetry as well.
    I love that first image especially, as I have a thing for reflections. That one is stunning.
    I have a shot from the Art Institute of Chicago that reminds me of the third one, with the escalators. There is something special about steps as well, I think. I could get happily lost for hours in a modern building of glass and stairs…

    1. Ah crap–just called you matt, tim! Sorry about that.
      I was thinking of another photographer that your work has often reminded me of. Matt Hanson, aka fatcatmatt, aka lostinkorea, someone I met on the Lensbaby forum a while ago and a phenomenal street photographer:
