Pinky making images of her home, Jadibuti slum, Kathmandu, Nepal
Photography is much about exposing your view, but there's so much more going on beneath the surface. There's a complicated concoction of thoughts and feelings that drive the impulse to lift a camera to your eye, to compose the raw material of what's present, and to wait patiently for the proper moment of capture... when time and space sync and align.
Teaching my eight photography students at Koseli School through my non-profit organization, Lens on Life, was such a thrill for me. I loved sharing the Art of iPhoneography and studying their images with each of them. While I've been slow to share this experience and the children's images with the world, there's been a lot of effort beneath the surface... things you can not see. But, it's coming. The children are still shooting. I'm working hard to sort and place the puzzle pieces into their proper spaces. And I'm eager to share more with you when the time is right.
