Viewing images
« on: March 29, 2020, 09:43:13 am »

Mike presented an interesting reminder about viewing images. It is not about how i would have created the image, but about viewing the image as it is and receiving something from it. It is what "street" and "landscape" try to do - evoke the viewer.

The funny thing is, his second picture example instantly reminded me of the HC-B photograph of the women in saris looking at the distant mountains. It's the shot that was supposedly the single great motivator for David Bailey to think for the first time hey, there is so much more to photography - let's go there!

I used to read TOP every day, but eventually realised that I had better stop going there: I couldn't get to grips with the system of responding: Mike didn't like me to reply to posters, only directly to his writing. It was just too frustratng because very often it was posters' opinions that sparked the greater interest in me. No single writer can hold all the attention that long. At least, not mine.
