On Photography 1

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”

Ansel Adams

As I begin working collaboratively on illustrating a collection of deeply insightful and emotive poetry, I chose this, the first quote on my blog of 2014 to amplify the vital importance of pre-visualisation and absorbing life’s experiences as the aide memoire to imaging.
