Finding The Path
I am always on a path to make a photograph. A photograph every day.
The path is unmapped, undefined, irregular, flexible.
The path is freedom. A freedom to explore.
The most difficult thing about the path is finding it.
More accurately, recognizing that you’ve found a path is the most difficult. The options presented to us all through our day are each an opportunity to make a photograph.
I’m a very amateur mathematician, a visually oriented mathematician, who sees these paths at tangents and secants where I’m the curved line.
Ideas for photos may come as tangents, striking at a single point and taking me away from my original travel. From the path I’m on. To another place.
Sometimes they come to me as secants passing through my arc, cutting it, piercing it, an interruption that leads to another spot in the arc. I’m on the same path with different intent.
Each moment of contact on the creative path is an opportunity to extend reality, to absorb passion, to enthuse your work with new dynamics.
A glancing tangent or the piercing of a secant is simply a message that a path is available. Perhaps the next path offered is the one that will become the defining path for your photography.
