The Power of The Image

The power of an image always amazes me, especially how it effects so many so differently. Many think you have to be a “pro” to have this power, the power of your photography effecting others. While you might think this is a little bit of a over kill for my point, just take a look at this retrospective The Atlantic is posting. The subject matter in some cases is very intense, but the photographers and their equipment are as simplistic as photography can make it. Yet the impact of their images, they way they hit you, there is no mistaking that. And added to that, it’s history. I’m just thinking out loud here, but perhaps there is a whole lot of power in your photographs and you just don’t recognize it yet.
