Welcome to Falling Through The Lens
At a photographic workshop years ago, the instructor encouraged students to “fall through the lens.” Although I’m sorry to say that I no longer recall which instructor said that, or what else happened at that workshop, I’ve carried those words with me.
Falling through the lens (or the pinhole) means allowing myself to be drawn to or moved by what I see, to experience its emotional and symbolic significance for me in that moment (even if that content isn’t readily accessible verbally), to become absorbed in the process of making a photograph – a silent interaction between me and the scene before me.
I hope that my photographs will convey experience as it’s lived subjectively, especially in the dreamlike moments that we may not always notice as we go about our lives.
