Open-mindedness does not mean that you agree with everything you see and hear. Rather, it implies an openness to realities and facts.
In photography, open-mindedness opens you up to see the world in new ways.
It allows you to be free from formalities in order to question and to open yourself to alternatives. It allows you to visualize freely. It is a doorway to understanding life and seeing the world in new ways. it is a doorway to imagination, creativity and becoming a true artist.
To be open means that you consider the things that you don’t understand and you understand that you’ll never know it all. Open-minded people are open to new ideas and new ways of thinking.
To be open-minded, allows you to question what you think you know and what you think you see. It allows you to re-think what you see and hear and do.
Open-minded photographers look at the world in new ways and as such, they break away from traditional image-making conventions in order to explore and to expand their own vision, their own lives and the lives of others.
To become open-minded allows us all to see through the walls we all need to face.
