Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #099 - We Accept This Food

I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the inspiration for this photograph — a very similar one made 60 years ago by photographer Wright Morris. His is better, but perhaps mine is no less heartfelt.

I opened this drawer and immediately thought of his image. Do I photograph it even though I know it's copying something I've seen before? Of course I do! How else do we learn other than by being inspired by and sometimes even trying to reproduce the work of our betters and artistic ancestors.
