Take and Witness.
[dropcap]I[/dropcap] was up this morning and sat in meditation. Around in my head, were the thoughts concerning photography. I take a photo. Taking the photo. It did not make sense
I always have to think about some cultures who regard the photo as stealing a part of the soul. Then my thoughts moved on to giving. Sharing. How is the sharing taking place. Apart from Instagram and Facebook, a professional photographer has to publish in order to share. But publishing has become easier and more difficult.
No, what has come out is bearing witness. Photographing is bearing witness to the moment, event and place. I feel that at this point in my work, its not any more taking a photo, but bearing witness to the moment.
