My goal isn’t to make photos. It just so happens that in my normal course of photography that I make pictures, but I see this as a side benefit. I want to be creative. I want to be inquisitive. I want to be attentive. I want to be in the moment and I want to be hopeful of the future. I want to be fascinated and awe struck at the myriad subtleties to life and the world. I want to be aware of the fact that no matter where I go or where I am that there are so many things that are different to where I came from. There are also many things that are the same. I want to enjoy the pattern that a leaf makes skittering across the road in a gust of wind. I want to look back in uncertain curiosity at that dog under the rug – watching me.
I want to spend some portion of my life wondering about coincidences.
Who creates coincidences, after all?
Because then, regardless of whether photos come of the moment or not, I get something vastly more rewarding. Release!
Release from being tethered to the wait for the right moment to arrive.
The right moment is always now.
