What We Do
From an email I received this morning from Doug Ethridge (alumnus from LensWork #96), I just have to share the following quote. I want all of you to print this out and stick it up on your refrigerator, your computer monitor, your bathroom mirror, or wherever you keep such inspirational snippets of wisdom and motivation. This is a keeper:
It is so true that more often than not, we set out on a mission and end up making images that are different than we anticipated. That is the beauty of art, isn't it. Seeing, thinking, responding, testing, failing — and then seeing glimmers of success. All in the hope that we can make an image that is not of something, but about something.
Beautifully stated and so true.
