Photographer's Note

* Continued from yesterday's my picture from the forest Kouri

I prefer un-remarkable subject matter for my photographs as this allows the viewer to pass on rapidly from concern with subject matter to a deeper engagement with the photograph. - Julian Flynn

In my photographs I'm happy that there should be some ambiguity as to what state is being portrayed. I like the photographs to 'shimmer' through a range of interpretations as one considers them. - Julian Flynn -

...if (the photographs) resist a simple explanation that's because (they) haven't really got one. The way that they appear is what they are about - and they communicate what I wished to communicate better than any words I can use to explain them. - Julian Flynn -

I'm not into that approach to photography where everything has to be perfect; where every landscape has to be unspoiled; every flower has to be a perfect specimen, a drop of dew on each petal; every portrait showing the person at their best. I'm moved by the mess of life, the way we, and the world around us, falls short of our dreams and our ideals: but we still try to make something beautiful out of it anyway; and that beauty is more moving because it acknowledges our fallen state. - Julian Flynn -
