“Because we have so much eye candy and mind candy, spending so much time trying to pay the rent, all of this conspires to keep us from thinking too hard.”
I have had a friend visiting for the past week and I had a very full week. We went to Vegas, saw a Cirque show, went in a wave pool and lazy river and I got to see the “National Geographic 50 Greatest Photographs”exhibit, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The back story was written on the wall next to each of the chosen images and that reading was just as compelling as the images were themselves. I could also see how far technology has advanced photography itself but the goal is the same:impact the viewer and engage him/her emotionally. And most of those photographs actually prompted positive world change and that is infinitely powerful.
