Part Three 20 Photographs

Part Three 20 Photographs

Introduction

THE FOLLOWING 20 PHOTOGRAPHS were chosen to represent as broad a cross-section of my own work as possible, but specifically with regard to discussing the concepts we’ve explored so far. I’ve chosen them to initiate conversations about the photographs themselves, not to praise them or give them more attention than they are due. A couple years ago, after the release of Within the Frame, I invited readers to submit images to a Flickr pool, and I did a series of 20 podcasts not unlike what I’m about to do here. I pulled the image up on screen and talked about the elements and decisions that led to its creation, and discussed those in terms of possible alternatives the photographer might have explored to make the photograph stronger. As a critic, I found this challenging insofar as I had no idea what the intent of the photographer was; I could only guess. If we’re to judge an image on its success at communicating a photographer’s intent, then I was missing a full half of the equation.
