A dominant theme in Curious Frame is the concept of change. Photography has changed so much in our everyday lives. I suspect that we will never really understand half of it.
In previous issues I’ve written about; how photography has influenced art (Issue 23
), how photography has an effect on our concept of memory (Issue 14
) and how photography has influenced social justice (Issue 28
) to name a few examples.
The thing they I haven’t really written about yet is the concept of chance. Chance is one of the prime influences on change.
Chance is, of course, a major influence in street photography as well. Being in the right place at the right time is always about chance and being prepared to capture it.
The more time that I spend on both street photography and lens-based art, the more I realize how important the idea of chance is to photography. So this issue is about chance.
To my dear friend in Brazil, I do hope that the situation in there will get better soon and that you’ll be able to get a vaccine. Best wishes and stay safe to everyone during these difficult times.
