In any photograph the image that is presented captures a moment in time. A few photographs of a setting could tell a story. The difference between a photograph and a subject is the memory it leaves behind, the statement it is trying to enforce.
Such as the images from hurricane Katrina. I wasn’t there in person yet the images taken felt so real….. i felt the struggle the loss, confusion and just pure anger
When a photograph can make something come to life, is when you know that the photo captured the subject in its ideal state.
