The camera is an excuse to be someplace you otherwise don’t belong. It gives me both a point of connection and a point of separation.
To photograph is to frame and to frame is to exclude.
—Susan Sontag in On Photography
You photograph with all your ideology.
Nature, like man, sometimes weeps for gladness.
(Somewhere in the hills)
I’m not a rain person and have often struggled to shoot the rain. Found this old photo which is my favourite rain picture. Taken on a bus while coming down the hills. It has got a certain stillness yet there is movement, it is black and white yet not gloomy, it makes me want to go outside inspite of the weather.
In a portrait, I’m looking for the silence in somebody.
