Jordi Gual. A portrait of his blind daughter, Natasha.
"Natasha's eyes taught me to see."
About a year ago, on an impulse, I began to immerse myself in the world of photography in an attempt to broaden and refine my knowledge. I wanted to uncover the essence of photography, to get a sense of why certain photographs had power over me while others did not. Over the course of this year, I culled a selection of photographs that attracted my attention. I've browsed through tens of thousands of photographs, saving the ones I found most evocative. In this thread, I will share what I gathered, hoping that discourse and discussion will enrich my appreciation even further.
Although I do not promise to post a new photograph every single day, I will post with a regularity that is more or less daily.
However, I will not post more than one photograph each day -- unless it's several images that constitute a series, or if I wish to draw a deliberate comparison between two photographs. Our daily lives of television and social media are already smothered in an overabundance of images. I want these photographs to stand on their own, to merit a few moments of solitary contemplation. I don't want them to be lost in the slipstream of tumblr and instagram. They deserve a chance to earn your attention.
