Camera Position 10 : A Story Without Words

Photographers have to be aware of the fact that viewers of their images can’t know the whole story of how a photograph came to be. The image has to rely on its own visual authority to get the message across. Using this photograph of Sant’ Antimo, a 12th Century Romanesque abbey in rural Tuscany, I explore the idea of where images come from and how that impetus translates to the viewer.

  1. I just started listening to your podcasts and am slowly working back through them. I love the story idea. Whether it is telling someone, or something, else’s story, or telling our own stories….within each picture, there really are a “thousand words,” as the saying goes.
