I look at lots of photographs. I really look at them…

I try to imagine taking the photograph myself and then printing it up, looking at the decisions that I would make. A step to the left? A more open lens? A square format? More shadow detail? A lith print? And so on. This is one of the ways I try to learn photography.

With so much invested in this process it’s important to choose your photographers wisely. Below is a list of photographers/printers that I am currently investigating. I got help compiling the short list.

The idea is to connect with each one and single out the important thing that makes their photography work for them. If one can reliably attribute a photographic style to an individual photographer, then, I figure, one has learnt something valuable about seeing.
