"Lead your life' ...as opposed to having 'life lead you'.....


About

Welcome to my lens where I try to capture 'humanity' within my photos. If I look at a photo and it leaves me with no impact, nor feelings...then what have I conveyed to the viewer?  I am challenging myself by the direction of Fan Ho who used people as incidentals and concentrated on the light, the geometric shapes to compose the images. In either case I utilize black and white photography for as Ho stated 'it provides a sense of distance and separation and is simplified and turns images to the abstract. The world of color is reduced to black, white and gray'.... Sharpness itself is immaterial as Henri Cartier-Bresson would state that 'sharpness is a bourgeois concept'...I agree. Of great influence is the work of Diedo Moriyama, whose stunning work exemplifies no need for sharpness. Let it be lost.

Thanks.. Jim Lehmann
