“Wide open shooting for me
is a sort of visual short-hand
to communicate life as a dream.”
For anyone familiar with my photographic work, it’s evident that I have a preference for shooting at wide open apertures.
There are plenty of reasons why I do this, but the main one is this: the visual imprint of wide open shooting is one where some things are readily perceived, while others are only hinted at… which is an accurate representation of how we perceive the world. And every single (fleeting) moment of life.
