Although a photograph is an image of the past, it can only exist in the present and is thus subject to interpretation in the immediate context of whoever is viewing it. I explored the essence of photography by exploring contrast, a fundamental element of photography. My exploration is framed by a pursuit of basic geometric elements in my environment: the building blocks of all forms, whether natural or artificial. By focusing on elemental themes (contrast and geometry), I directed my energy at expressing my perception of the essence of photography.
