Homages

December 14, 2012

Among so many other things, the photographer looks at many photographs. A love affair often forms and this is true for me too. When I saw Cape Light by Joel Meyerowitz, in which he presents images from a summer on Cape Cod, I discovered the idea of photographing atmosphere. A place is nothing but atmosphere, really, but it is far more than objects and orientation. It is a moment. And under certain conditions, the moment is more visible. But it is especially difficult to record well. An 8x10 film negative does not hurt. I got to speak with Jock Sturges who works this way, and he raised the notion of "transparency of image". Verisimilitude, or nearness to reality, becomes a goal in approximating this feeling of a place and a moment. I will always try.
