The Way I Photograph

In by Michael on November 16, 2012 at 1:49 am

A good photo, first of all, has to have familiarity.

That means the viewer can plug in, understand the scene, and be confident she “gets it.”

I want each person to navigate an ambiguity, to interpret it uniquely, and completely understand that other people will see it differently because that is the nature of ambiguity.

This freedom to navigate can only happen when the artist makes no editorial, no noise.

I like to make art that is like a prism. It’s so simple, and basic, yet a line shines through it to open up the whole spectrum of the rainbow.
