A photograph is only ever a sliver of a moment in a particular place. The specific play of photons at a particular conjuncture of space-time is never repeated exactly the same twice, nor is the exact location of the photographer’s frame. Every photograph is, therefore, unique, however similar it may appear to its sister of the same location at a different time. It’s what make’s photography a creative art- every snap of the shutter is entirely unique, with endless possibilities.
An image on its own can be powerful. I want to take more images that, on their own, can stand void of any words to accompany them and still pack a punch for the viewer. However sometimes words can add a little depth to a photograph that allows the viewer to take an extra step into the dimension the photographer experienced.
I wanted to share a few of these moments in space and time with you, some of my favourite places that have correspondingly been captured by photographs that I feel grabbed a little something of the atmosphere of the place. Apologies if you’ve seen a couple of them before. I hope you enjoy this little journey over the next few posts.
