The Answer to Difference

Difference is of the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. The answer to difference is to respect it. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace: respect for diversity.

    1. It has been fun posting these. Visits to the blog have spiked this week, so it pleases me to have people spreading the word about “I Shutter At The Thought!” and to know they are enjoying the photos.
      Thank you so much for your comment(s), Jean Ann.

  1. I don’t know many photographers who are capturing people as themselves – common humanity, individual diversity, spark of divinity – the way you’re doing. I feel like I’m peering into their real selves. BTW, if a web log is a ‘blog’, and a video blog is a ‘vlog’ – would your photography blog be a ‘plog’?

    1. Thank you, Carl. I take that as a very meaningful compliment. My goal in photographing people is to do exactly what you’ve described: capture them as themselves. Even in a formal portrait sitting, I can’t stand a posed look that eliminates individuality. I’m much more a fan of environmental portraiture; people look most natural, most flattering in their own environment, and that’s what I enjoy doing.
      And the answer to your question is that it’s a “phlog” (photo-blog). 🙂
