An image that fits with what a lot of us have been feeling this week.
I've been reading again about Edward Hopper's work. I like his work, and consciously or unconsciously I have been influenced by it in my own. He wasn't a "realist" exactly, but he didn't make pure abstractions either. That fits with my discomfort with "pure" photography. One characteristic of photographs that some celebrate is the camera's showing everything there, all the details. I find that that sometimes hides what I find interesting in an image--thus my attempts to get beyond the "pure" photograph to what it can reveal about the world around us, and this requires something other than just showing . . .
