At the opening of our current photo exhibition I mentioned it: I found a new hero of photography! His name is Wynn Bullock.
Also for him the developing of perception of man was important. Once and again he changed his photographic technics and entered virgin soil. First working as B&W photographer with a 8 x 10 view camera, he changed to abstract color shots (which were made with the camera, that also was my first SLR, an Exacta from GDR), and three or four years later came back to Black and White with an 2 1/4 2 1/4 Rollei SL66.
Mysteries lie all around us, even in the most familiar things, waiting only to be perceived.
What you see is real—but only on the particular level to which you’ve developed your sense of seeing. You can expand your reality by developing new ways of perceiving.
I also decreasingly want to photograph what I see already, do not document, not reproduce, but learn by photography how my seeing can be more unprejudiced, more open, how I can see more, more accurately and deeper as before. Ideally my photographs are surprising me.
