Photographic art, like other art mediums, is more a form of communication than anything else. It is like a second language with different cultural and regional/global dialects expressed in the capturing of tones, shapes, lines, and subject matter choices. The richness of this ‘language’ comes through in the ‘play of light’. Each photograph is captured and developed to speak of the essence felt in each subject. The tonality, paper, and inks are all incorporated into the message.
