Photography is not about the camera


Couldn’t have said it better myself, this coming from a person that takes all her pictures on her iPhone! I always felt the story behind the photo leaving the viewer wondering is the most important, like an old painting. I think there is a lot of power in that.

Photography is not about the camera. It’s not even about the beautiful images we create. It is about telling powerful stories. Photography is a tool for creating awareness and understanding across cultures, communities, and countries; a tool to make sense of our commonalities in the world we share.
