More Than Meets The Eye

Rodin Sculpture Garden, Palo Alto, CA

One of my favorite parts of photography is when you can expose your favorite part of a thing, the pieces of your visual field that are totally and utterly drawing you in. At its best, photography is something more than capturing an objective reality – it’s taking what anyone can see with their own eyes, and finding a way to overlay the image with a bit of your own POV. I don’t claim to do that with any degree of consistency, but I adore that this is a possibility.

In that spirit, while the entirety of The Gates of Hell is a wonder, it’s the portion here that draws my eye, every gosh-darned time, and when I think of the sculpture, I often have to remind myself that there’s more than this.
