Chapter 12. The Transformative Power of Light > The Answer Is in the Light

The Answer Is in the Light

I likely would’ve spent a lifetime in that cycle had I not realized the importance of light and its role in conveying my unique way of seeing the world. It’s not enough to say that my conscious awareness of the light changed the way I use the camera. It also led me to recognize the uniqueness of how I can see and reveal the world.

When I allowed myself to be led by the light, I began to make images I would have never have considered before. I not only photographed subjects differently, but I made images of people and scenes that, in the past, I would’ve totally ignored. As I made images of people, places, and things that everyone else was oblivious to, I began to understand and appreciate how I was seeing the world and, in turn, using the camera to convey that.
