Thanks to deep research into the life and techniques of Ansel Adams, I learned that the most valuable tool to an artist is the mind’s eye. In poetic licence, it is comprised of past experiences recollected by the use of the imagination, as to a camera recording light through the use of creativity in a moment in time. However, no matter how vivid images are produced by such mediums, they are marred by imperfections. To the mind, its imagination is only limited by its ability to hold memories in linear thought and what its focus was in those moments. This is similar to the camera, its clarity of its captured moments is determined by the cleanliness of its parts and how its lens is focused. |
To look through the mind's eye is like to see the world through a lens. When the opposite is true, then to see a photograph is to see into one's mind and soul. I believe photography is important because it opens a window into the subconscious, where mankind's true potential is hidden away. Photography allows me to tap into this potential, where I can interpret its meaning and uses to better the world.
