Close But No Cigar

While it may be true that “if your photos aren’t good enough you’re not getting close enough” we should never fall pray to the idea that proximity is a substitute for intimacy.

Pentecostal church service, Barcelona

Sometimes the two are linked, often they are not. Intimacy, not closeness, should be what we are searching for. A successful photograph is one that allows the viewer to transpose herself with the photographer at the moment the image was taken. When I create a portrait I want you to feel as though you were in the room, standing where I was standing.

Standing in the need of prayer.
