All photographs are judgements.

Photography is not a medium known to expose the invisible. I hate statements that say, “My photographs are about making the invisible visible.” Hogwash. All photographs are judgements. All photographs depict the prejudices of the photographer. Photographers make choices – camera, lens, film, composition, color, B&W,, etc..

One does not breathe in a vacuum.

      1. For the creator it’s autobiographical. For the life of me I can’t figures out why I am so drawn to NOLA culture, which is Second Line, Mardi Gras Indian and Baby Dolls.

  1. We all bring our backgrounds, our experiences, our interpretations to our art. We can both look at something and see it in totally different ways. Or we may not notice what someone else sees. You are right, Keith. We very much bring ourselves into our photography.
