I try not to view only the shadows on the wall of the cave. I try to be the wall, with all of it’s bumps and cracks and uneven surfaces. I look out to the source of those shadows and attempt to reflect them back. Sometimes an object occludes, eclipses that view of the wider context, sometimes not. Sometimes we get in our own way.
I am not the camera, I wish to make the camera reflect what I see. The camera is not reflecting some kind of super-objective vision. Blurriness, lens reflections, sun dogs, this is what human vision is like, this is what I see.
