Photography is the search for the lost. When photographing any thing you must look for the qualities that are lost to the average observer, and photograph those aspects. For example when photographing machinery I look for the "lost" beauty of the machine. Some one who works with that machine day in and day out only sees the machine in it's utilitarian context. The same goes for photographs of the people running these machines. One needs to photograph the human side of their labors; some thing that many managers forget to do. This also extends to portraiture I feel that I must show the inner human side of the person, not just an image of them. The photographing of buildings, and landscapes is also the search for some thing "lost." We forget about the beauty of building that we see every day, and begin to take them for granted. By photographing them I hope to show that beauty before it is too late and if it is too late at least record that beauty for future generations.
