I spend quite a bit of time, shooting, processing, viewing and reading about photography and art. The more I engage in those things, the more I realize how little I know and how little content that I find that answers a million questions about it all.
So much of what is written about photography and art requires an advanced degree. It is written in a very abstract language and places a large distance between the intellect and the intuitive.
I have long held the belief that art and photography should be accessible to all without being dependent on some kind of special knowledge or that at least it is written in a manner that everyone can grasp.
I recall many years ago reading a book by the neurologist, Oliver Sacks and coming to the realization that even I could understand neurology, if only in a limited manner.
It is an art to be able to explain an advanced idea in a language that most everyone can understand. So I am constantly in search of writers that write about art and photography so that it is accessible to all.
This is one of the important reasons that I write Curious Frame. I hope that I don’t write in a manner that is difficult to understand. I am always attempting to make sense of things that are often glossed over because they are written in a language that is difficult to understand.
As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome AND you can even disagree with me. Debate is a great form of dialogue and understanding.
