The Power To Describe, The Power To Relate

The camera is indeed a powerful tool, capturing in an instant what a painter would take much more longer to do.

Thomas Hoepker, one of the great Magnum Photographers stated:

“You cannot photograph anything that is not within you as you simply do not see certain picture possibilities to which another photographer would jump immediately.”

Each of us have come from different upbringings, been subjected to different influences and environments, and have different thoughts. That is what makes each one of us, and indeed our vision so unique.

How do you see our World?  How would you describe it with your camera?

Discover your vision. Discover your World.
