Within the four corners of the frame, you create your own world. You create connections other people otherwise would not see, had you not blanked everything else out.
Photographers are curators who are saying, “Look at this!”
And by saying, “Look at this!” you are also saying, “Don’t look at that!”
Photography is just as much about concealing as it is as about showing.
Thus, you are defined not just by what you choose to show but also by what you choose not to show.
Most people may think of photography as placing a spotlight on a certain element of life, but we can also think of photography as turning the lights off on all other elements of life.
Highlighting by subtracting.
Showing by hiding.
Revealing by obscuring.
