Ordinary Things

“We are losing interest in the ordinary things of the world, and that is turning us into barbarians”

“If we are to change our world view, images have to change. The artist now has a very important job to do. He’s not a little peripheral figure entertaining rich people, he’s really needed.”

-Vaclav Havel

 

Sometimes it is much easier for me to write about how I feel through the words of others. Perhaps this is because I feel much more at ease behind a camera than behind a keyboard, and prefer to converse through imagery rather than prose. But, more than likely, it is simply due to a crippling fear of writing something that is boring, or could be said better by someone else.

This blog is made with the hopes of communicating better. Not just forming clearer and stronger writing about my photography, but creating a place that is free, full of information, and a platform for action. I am an idealist. I believe in photography as a democratic tool, one that has yet to reach its full potential.
