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.

Quick Quotes: Julian Scnabel

Traditionally, photography is supposed to capture an event that has passed; but that is not what I'm looking for. Photography brings the past into the present when you look at it.

Julian Schnabel


This quote really speaks to me.  At first glance the two ideas may seem similar, but they are different as night and day. To capture the past means you can look at and remember it. To bring it into the present means that, to some extent, you can re-experience it.
