Photography: the art, science and practice of creating pictures by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium, such as a photographic film, or electronic image sensors.
Photography has many other meanings depending on who you ask. Every photographer can tell a different story even though it follows the same steps. For some, like Anne Guedes, it will be the expression and tenderness of a child in nature and to others, such as Ansel Adams, it’s the sense of splendor and beauty of nature. Dorothea Lange and Alfred Eisenstaedt show us what is happening around the world in a journalistic way while SteveMcCurry will enlighten us with his documentary style photography. Areal views on William Garnett’s photos, portraits and heritage by Yousuf Karsh on and on it goes as seen by so many photographers now and then.
For me photography is that and more, it’s capturing a piece of life that we have lived and being able to remember it and cherish it again and again. It’s about freezing a moment with imagination, it’s the way to express who we are. Photography for me is memories for a lifetime.
