Moved By Images

“What are your three favorite photographs made by other photographers and what do you see as themes or characteristics that link these choices together?”

The question interests me on many levels, one of which is that we all see differently and for different reasons. In providing imagery that “moves us” or grabs our attention, are we not providing some flicker of insight into our personhood?

My choices came fast….
Running White Dear, Paul Caponigro

Home Funeral, Shelby Lee Adams

Harvest, Joel Peter Witkin

These are not my favorite images… but among the many favorites that I have. What they all three have in common is “Raw Nature” I am drawn to photographs that make me think about the spirituality of life.

I am interested in hearing from others what their “favorites” are.
