In the current issue of Better Photography magazine, Len Metcalf explores photographers’ relationships with the subjects and projects they photograph.
“I like to maintain that I photograph the things that I love most in the world. The things that interest me. The things that spark my own personal attention. I also maintain that my photography will tell the viewer more about who I am as a person than I am able to put into words. Often it takes me years to fully understand the meaning of much of my work, for I believe my intuition and psyche are well ahead of my consciousness. For me, photography is a deeply personal indulgence of love and joy. A meditation and an escape. In doing so, hopefully my work communicates on a very personal level as art.”
And as usual, Len’s article is accompanied by some of his beautiful black and white nature studies. If you’re on top of your technique and you’re trying to work out what it will take to become a better, more proficient photographer, this article is a must read!
