“In my judgment, you are not a true photographer unless you care deeply about the world in which we live – spiritually, ecologically, politically, and open-mindedly – with heartfelt compassion.”
– John Neel
I believe it is important to question everything.
To me, a photograph is meant to spur critical thought. A photograph is a way to view and interpret the world by means of examination.
It is a way to view the world and understand what is seen. It is a way to improve oneself and affect the lives of others.
Most of the time, I see a photograph as more of a questioning than an exclamation.
Although, it may be both, and also much much more.
