'All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream' Edgar Allan Poe.
I've always wondered how to best describe the reasons I found photography such a compelling method of self expression. Part of it's appeal, I'm sure, is in it's very restrictions. There is a freedom born of the very limitations of the frame, of the mechanics of the medium. Visual octaves.
For me, photography is a leap of faith, essential, undeniable.
Moments of clarity. Moments of connection. The fog of the everyday that swirls and confuses until a light beam catches, something is revealed and a shutter is released.
Enjoy if you can. I did in making them.
