Why Photography #2

February 03, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Today I came across the work of a photographer, Dave Jordano, that simply put, blew me away. His photographs speak for themselves, and they say all that needs to be said about "Why photography". In my earlier postings I discuss what is art, and this work of which I now speak embodies what 'art' is to me. It stops me in my tracks, grabs me by the collar and makes me take notice, and makes me reflect in a profound way on what it means to be human.

It exemplifies what I would like to achieve with my photography. It is inspirational and also humbling, since I know I will not come close to this level of perfection.

I've said enough. As I said, the work speaks for itself - as truly great work should. The link below is where you can see - and judge - for yourself. He has many portfolios, all are outstanding, but check out in particular the ones on Detroit, Marktown, Praireland, and Articles of Faith.
