The Nature of Photography
What is it that keeps us looking, imaging, clicking and scrolling.
In a world full of images, amongst the millions of photographs being created and shared each day, we take in visual content and form at the speed of light, never growing tired of the sheer mass of scenes, viewpoints and snippets we've consumed in the endless pursuit of that unknown moment that we instantly recognize.
Is there an end to this persistent, peculiar and seemingly instinctual quest for the rare visual delight that tickles deep in the belly and cuts like a knife. What creates the compulsion to put our experiences and visions into tiny compartments and then share with another. When will we have seen enough or pictured it all?
As we continue to satisfy our insatiable desire for photographs, seeing pieces of our world through many different eyes - we can ask ourselves if we've ever really seen it all. And so, with a renewed sense of wonder and curiosity; we begin to contemplate again -
the nature of photography.
