A photograph can nevertheless abstract a moment from the particular, drawing the scene away from its context to take on a new and different significance.
The best photographs capture the photographer’s experience of the moment and impart the feeling of that experience to the viewer, all the while building meaning before every new set of eyes. The interpretation of the moment, and of the meaning behind an image, is an ever-developing relationship between photographer and viewer. The photographic act of granting significance to moments both great and small is a search not only for meaning, but also for spiritual sustenance found in the everyday, seen anew.
