This is the forty-seventh ‘Instruction’ for the Street Photography Now Project, written to inspire fresh ways of looking at and documenting the world we all live in.
“The real subject is yourself facing the world.” – Thierry Girard
Images from the street, to encourage one to view the world in a fresh way.
These images are not from the ‘street’ but of a friend’s dog taken a couple of years ago. I think a dogs face can elicit many different emotions.
“Make a picture that is funny and sad at the same time. A photograph that simultaneously evokes pathos, irony and humour.” – Jeff Mermelstein
Several years ago I wrote an entry in my blog on how my photography has changed over the years, from my first memory of using a camera to present day. Many aspects of my life and many people have contributed toward my journey in photography.
I thought I would post these entries again for people to read and also to remind myself of where I came from. Unfortunately, the original entries are somewhere in lah lah internet land, so I will re-write the entries and provide a fresh perspective.
Every Tuesday I will post a chapter, starting tomorrow, 28th February 2012.
“See the characters but create your own plot” – Martin Kollar
