“Photography is the story I fail to put into words” — Destin Sparks
One of the things I’ve learned about photography — in part from the sharing of images here on WP — is how much everyone who views an image brings their own stories to what they see.
We all make sense of the world in different ways. Sometimes words help us understand; and sometimes it is enough to read light and colour and shape and composition.
What served in the place of the photograph, before the camera’s invention? The expected answer is the engraving, the drawing, the painting. The more revealing answer might be: memory. – John Berger
