Quoting Emile Zola, “If you ask me, you cannot claim to have seen something until you have photographed it.”
My interest in photography could be attributed as a manifestation of my quest to see.
...The truth expressed by Robert Haas as the big irony of photography materializes at this point: When the photographer records an image that he sees with his naked eyes, he actually records what naked eyes would not be able to see. I think that that inner breath and energy underlines this ironic truth. There is a subtle difference, which I have no control over, between my look at the world through my bare eyes and through the viewfinder. At the least, you focus on a portion of the reality of all that exists around you, one which you want to see and document. And this look at reality is not always to see the beauty or perfection. Time comes when your look wanders to a deformity, an imbalance and to the abnormal.
