I don’t know about anyone else, but I know that for me,
the beauty of nature is needed more than ever these days.
From my retrospective book:
“Seeing and feeling beauty is more vital to me than any
resulting imagery. When the key elements of photography—
light, composition, and emotion—are before me,
I am fully engaged, yet detached, without expectations.
The magic of my discovery—whether the dramatic light
of a clearing storm or an intimate detail on the forest
floor—recharges my spirit with a sense of wonder. The
intensity of the experience makes me feel vibrant and
alive, the necessary first step to creating a transcendent
image. “Be still with yourself until the object of your
attention affirms your presence,” describes Minor
White. When I view the resulting imagery, I have the
possibility of reconnecting with these moments of
beauty. Ultimately, as Minor White defines it, the most
penetrating images reveal the essence of the subject for
what it is . . . and for what else it is.”
I hope and pray that you are well and stay safe.
