I think it is good to make photographs that may appear to have no deeper meaning or greater significance than the thoughtful examination of the subject.
I am delighted when a viewer understands my interpretation and agrees with my conclusion, but I am not disappointed if they do not. Realizing a mutually-meaningful aesthetic experience remains an elusive goal.
If my image makes some connection with a viewer and engages their imagination, I feel my photograph has successfully touched them.
