I think that mysterious things happen in familiar places…. I like ambiguity in a photograph… When we do not know why aphotographer has taken a picture, and when we do not know why we are looking at it, all of a sudden, we discover something that we start seeing

I tweeted earlier this week about this monumental quote I recently discovered and how it must be shared. It is exactly how I feel about this path I’m heading. I don’t know how to quite describe it but I’m fascinated by just pressing that shutter. Its almost like something has drained my sometimes impulsive urges to photograph the streets of Miami and all of a sudden I’m awaken to new a reality. A reality, I think Daido Moriyama found out a long time ago and hence his great body of work chronicling his reality:

For me, photography is not a means by which to create beautiful art, but a unique way of encountering genuine reality.
