photographers need good shoes
i do not run i do not ride
it is the only way to see
i’m not very good at making plans or reading maps
i find that a good book or a good comic book
or a movie
or a song
are the best guides
as is that thing they call serendipity these days
although we might use the simple word of chance or luck
which bears much resemblance to luck
you cannot force it but you better be ready for it
when it comes down
To me, photography is a philosophy in practice rather than in words (and so I’ll keep this short).
Photography is a way of responding to the world as it is (not fabricating it), while at the same time engaging with the world (choosing what to see, what to show).
There is presence, acceptance and engagement; my camera is the tool that helps me be present, accept circumstances as they are, and engage with them.
I’m working on letting myself be guided by intuition, an insatiable curiosity and the occasional touch of gentle irony.
