Tracking time and place, noting events and histories.
Photographs freeze time, preserve memories, track passing time, and act as silent witnesses to events. A photograph is like a Teleprompter for the mind; a mnemonic aid that keeps the story flowing.
Like Lewis Hines, I really would instead take a hundred photos than write a hundred words because I want the viewer to see what I saw.
Photographs invoke stories that begin this way: "Ah, yes... this is where we jumped into the boat before we found out it leaked. And this is where we jumped out of the boat before it sank..." Photographs guide stories.
Enjoy some of the photographs from my Instagram feed, below. Hope you are inspired or reminded of a particular time or place. To see the gallery, visit www.instagram.com/segunolude.
