Photographs heals enmity as much as it can bring tears to one’s eye. At its extreme end, it can invoke anger and hatred.
Anyone can claim to be a good photographer but can they shoot the wind? They can shoot the effects of the wind or every single grain of sand or things the wind carries with it but wind itself? It costs us nothing to be humble…
Art is internal, photography external. Therefore one must paint with what is inside of
us, our feelings, our emotions, our thoughts before it can be called Art. If one does
on-the-spot paintings from still life to landscapes to street scenes or even portraits,
one is merely a photographer, not an artist. Because photography is capturing what is
happening all around us, not inside of us. It is an external discipline.
The happenings around you does not compose that image. Your eyes does
not compose that image for it is but an optical instrument. It is what that is
happening behind your eye that composes the image that makes your
finger click the shutter.
