This weekend I attended a photography workshop put on by Art Wolfe here in San Francisco dealing with creativity and creative vision. Note: I’ll have a recap and review of the workshop posted soon. During the workshop a quote by Elliott Erwitt was displayed and it really struck a nerve.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
Why this struck a nerve is that my outlook on photography has been in transition the past few months. I’ll be posting about that in the coming day so take a look for it. In the mean time wrap your brain around this quote. It’ll provide a brief glimpse into my thinking as of late.
