THOUGHTS ON THE POETICS OF PHOTOGRAPHY

 

To me, photography is a form of light poetry—creating poetic images with light. We frame photographs as we frame written poems, deciding on where to focus, the scope and depth of field, and what to leave to the imagination. We're making structural choices, using the language of visions, colors, light, and hints of storytelling. Sometimes, for one reason or another, the words don't come, but this is a poetic form that's always inviting the light, getting things to start clicking, one way or another.

(I shared this thought in Of Poets & Poetry, July 2020, where it was beautifully formatted with a photograph.)
