Photography is our passion, and we know it’s yours. Just as future generations will view our photos, we sometimes use photos to connect with the past. It provides us with an understanding of how previous generations lived. We often look for photos to experience more of different cultures or activities. Timing and opportunity play a big part in photography. It will make you want to slow down, look closely and enjoy the unexpected. Photographers whose work illuminates the stories behind their pictures are from many different parts of the globe and have different approaches, from the subtle unseen observer, to those who like to go in close.
