More on Making a Photograph (Two Photographs)

Flowers-2To view more of my photography please click on

In writing about photographs telling their own story and about retaining context in photographs, it is not my intention to suggest that nothing should be left to the imagination of the audience. For example, there is no doubt that the subject is a flower and that I have chosen which parts of the flower to include in my image. To some degree imagination gives the larger context, as does the background, shapes and forms of the flower. Sometimes a part of the whole is more than enough. This may sound like a contradiction of Aristotle who said, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” He was talking about the mechanics of things and not art.
