There were times when I was editing this assignment that I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for. Was this story going to show next steps and future plans—conceptual themes that can be harder to visualize? Or should it speak to the journey that we're all on and literally show the paths we’ve taken? I decided it should cover both, because those are the images you shared.
We all interpret things differently. We each have our own filters that we see the world through. This is what makes photography so interesting to me. It’s personal and subjective. It allows the viewer to add their own interpretation to what they're seeing. Which is why I’m fond of photos with lots of layers; they make you dig deeper into their meaning. As photographers, we want the viewer to feel and respond to and understand what that person or place or thing means to us.
