“The question is not what you look at but what you see!”
– Henry David Thoreau
I seek the simple, sublime, and sudden in nature, urban landscape, minimal, and street photography.
Originally from Canada, I have settled in Osaka, Japan.
Photography for me is both therapy and purpose. It’s a manner of expression to experience and develop what I see, to rouse meaning, interpretation, emotion, metaphor, and spatial harmony. It is also a gathering point to explore the ‘captured moment’ by others, whatever the genre. This blog, then, is a contribution in a communal effort–I am keen to explore and experience your forum as well.
The title of this blog comes from some word-play with my first and family name. Through it I suggest that, no matter one’s beliefs, what is important is that behind our identities we can respect each other despite our differences.
With regard to street photography, I upload what I judge to be appropriate. My aim is simply to capture an emotion, situation, or instant with which we can make a connection, whether simple or deep, and find the spirit of ourselves. While this is fuzzy territority because it involves some intrusion into other people’s privacy, I hope I can be forgiven for at times taking pictures without permission. Having said that, I am open to feedback on anything that might be deemed inappropriate.
