About "Patterns in the Whole"
“Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliot IrwittI apply this theory to much of my work, whether it be through the use of a different lens or angle, or simply waiting for the right shadow play, or position of the subject…an inflection if you would, much like the change in pitch or tone of a voice.
Sometimes, an image doesn’t need to have a story. Sometimes, an image is about appreciation. For texture, a bold colour or juxtaposition, even a pattern… a hidden abstraction within the world we live in. These abstractions are all around us, you just have to look…and see, the patterns in the whole.
