Time, movement, light, shape and context captured and frozen forever.
A photograph may be purely a record of a person, an animal, a place, a scene, an object or an event, creating a very specific piece of history that will survive the assault of the years and the ravages of fading memory.
A photograph may be a beautiful, profound work of art, the product of the photographer’s eye and instincts, choices, tastes and preferences as if being laid out on a canvas and easel. It may be what the camera saw, or it could be what the photographer saw. It may be realistic or deeply abstract, it may contain and flaunt its own or assumed colours or even leave behind the world of colour to embrace the drama of black and white. It may change its context, escape from its time and place of capture into the endlessly variable space of photographic art that reaches out to the senses of the observer.
Sometimes, of course, it can be both.
