He discovered that his pictures could reveal not only the clarity bit the obscurity of things, and that these mysterious and evasive images could also, in their own terms, seem ordered and meaningful” – John Szarkowski – The Photographers Eye (1980)
Szarkowski argues that photography is the single most influential medium which has sculpted the way in which we see our world and that the practice of photography helps us to understand artistry outside its discipline. In this quote above, @EstelleKeeber and I interpret that imagery can convey both meanings and ideas, from different people and experiences together. In the same photograph. We can see the obscure and clarity, the chaos and the calm. As individuals who experience the chaos, it’s reliving to disconnect from the world, if only to recreate it in our own unique way.
