Here is the third installment of the 3 words series. It is an experiment and I thank the people who have contributed to it so far. There’s still time to submit to it as this is an ongoing project. Just hit reply in your email.
It isn’t scientific or objective. But we already know that photography is always subjective. So this is about what you think and feel about photography in 3 words.
Obviously, 3 words isn’t even sufficient to fully explain what photography means to us. Nevertheless, here is the second submission in the series and these 3 words could’ve easily been my own.
Life Love Art
I couldn’t have chosen three better words to describe my experience with photography. Photography is a large portion of my life. But regardless, photography is life. How could it be anything else?
When I think about photography is life, I immediately thought of the first photography book that I ever owned, The Family of Man.
It is still an amazing book and I wonder what it would’ve been like to actually see the exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art back in 1955 when all 503 photos were on display.
I love photography and it is often clear when viewing photos by many photographers that they too love not only looking at photos, but also the act of taking photos.
Art, such a small word. A mere 3 letters. One syllable and yet it says so so much. Photography has always been an art for me both in the seeing and the doing.
Art really is about having the ability of presenting something in a way that it can mean something to others as well even if that meaning is not exactly the same as the person making it.
Life, Love & Art are all words that can explain photography when it is done well.
