Blog

Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Why Photograph?

My last few posts have been to share interesting articles I have found on the internet.  And for that reason I was planning not to do the same with this post.  And then I ran across photographer Paul Butzi's article entitled "The Flash Of Recognition (Or, Why I Photograph)". Reading his article gave me insight into the question of "Why photograph?" that I had felt internally but was never really able to express.  Paul has expressed it with great clarity, and I want to share his words, as they really hit home for me.  Perhaps they will for you as well.
