I Love This Quote

The most compelling photographs you take begin with the things about which you are most interested, most passionate, and most curious.  When those photographs are taken in a way that communicate your unique perspective, they translate into images that say something.  They are more than a record of “I was here and saw this.”  Instead, they become “I feel this way about this.  I was in this place and saw it like this.”  They are not acts of representation as much as they are acts of interpretations.

-David duChemin (from “Within the Frame”)
