Photographer's Note

"The depiction in photography of emotion or character by details intended to achieve a vividness or effectiveness more by invoking subjective and sensory impressions than by recreating an objective reality.

The key to seeing the world's soul, and in the process wakening one's own, is to get over the confusion by which we think that fact is real and imagination an illusion. It is the other way around.

The great tradition of still photography is documentation, the representation of objective reality. The photographer observes a scene, situation, or object and responds to it by endeavouring to show it as it appears. The average person on vacation, the parent who is photographing his or her family, and probably a large majority of serious amateurs and professionals operate mainly within this tradition. However, there is a second tradition, that of altering physical reality for the purpose of expressing the photographer's personal response to specific subject matter or to a concept or idea."
