Impact

Impact

Sometimes I like impact in an image that takes a little time. It’s not the attention-getting slap in the face that many photographers strive for. It’s an impact that reveals itself and increases in complexity, slowly with attention.

This slow burn isn’t a new notion in art. Some Mark Rothko paintings take on meditative and zen-like qualities. A Jackson Pollack composition becomes rhythmic and dimensional. JMW Turner’s blasts of light transform into authentic scenes of fireworks in fog. Those details revealing themselves slowly become the point of the work, the real story.

I think this image is along those lines. It’s of a more contemplative moment along the coast of Florida.
