“An artist is making something exist in a different way by observing it first. And his hope for other people is that they will also make it exist by observing it. I call it ‘creative observation’ – ‘creative viewing’”

Don’t see faces, houses, trees – see ovals, squares and triangles. Don’t see grasses, reeds, droplets, reflections – see shapes, lines, textures, rhythms, the elements of visual design…How to place them in your frame is largely determined by – how close or distant you are, what you include or exclude, how much or how little negative space you create – whichever produces the graphically stronger image. The closer you get, the more you depart from recognizable reality and will open up new, unseen worlds. Shallow depth of field and blur will further enhance this departure from objectivity and documentation, getting you closer to personal expression.
By practicing the ‘art of seeing’ we can greatly enhance the pleasure of discovering the world around us, and perhaps…discover ourselves.
