How to photograph LIFE.
Take a big black box
and climb into it.
Close it up.
Then, you poke a hole into one of the walls with a pin.
Do you see how the light comes in?
How it shows the world from the outside but upside down on the wall of the box?
Now, peer through that pinhole until there is nothing else in your mind but what is
reflected on the walls at the back of the box - in this case, your head.
When there is nothing else left but what is there in front of you -
When everything else, the box, the thoughts of the box, the stresses of being alone in that box
That's your soul
reflected in the world out there.
