Photographing with my Being

Photographing with my Being, October 22 - November 22, 2009

For one month, I did not take any photographs. At first, when I felt the desire to take one, I got teary and walked away or avoided places altogether. Eventually, I let go of my ingrained use of the medium. Instead of snapping an image and walking away, I photographed with my being. I took the subject in with my whole body and all my senses. Subjects ranged from trash on the street, my sister, something in the sky, a little boy running, a tree, and some dirt.
