Is there truth in photography?
Whilst sitting here preparing for tonight's presentation at Apple I am starting to wonder where the truth is in the images I will show. Sure, they are a slice of time at that very moment and for me the truth lies in the convergence of the elements necessary to produce the image right there, right then. I see it, I capture it, I show it.
To the observer of photography, I wonder just what they see? For instance, in this image above is this the shadow of a shopping cart on a wall or is it a shopping cart behind a nearly sheer backdrop? For that matter, does it matter?
As I see it, the truth in photography is what you want it to be. . .
