Wynn Bullock said, “As I became aware that all things have unique spatial and temporal qualities which visually define and relate them, I began to perceive the things I was photographing not as objects but as events. Working to develop my skills of perceiving and symbolizing these event qualities, I discovered the principle of opposites. When, for example, I photographed the smooth, luminous body of a woman behind a dirty cobwebbed window, I found that the qualities of each event were enhanced and the universal forces which they manifested were more powerfully evoked.”

Yeh right, like that’s gonna happen : – )

When I view the physical and metaphysical aspects of these organic and inorganic objects with different temporal relationships both to each other and to different aspects of themselves, I begin to understand that the framing of the image and the recording of the reflected illumination on the electrical component of the device in your hand or on your tripod, both have a causative effect on the presented work of art (neglecting for the moment any modulation of the picture elements during the transition between the source and the sink). The juxtaposition of these situational parameters provide foundational power to the quality of the presentation.

(I am unable to translate that from Art Speak to English)

Happily I have finally been able to get back here. For several days the link didn’t work. I will have to book mark it.!

I will enjoy the honeysuckle and leave luminous bodies to sci fi writers 😀

oh what? not going to find that luminous woman behind a cobwebbed window? 😉
I do like the contrast of the twining green of the honeysuckle against the opposing broken window, stone, and weathered window pane.
