LOOKING OUT AND LOOKING IN: WINDOWS, DOORWAYS, ARCHWAYS
Windows, doorways and archways are mysterious and ambiguous. They are frames, whose content causes the photographer and the viewer to wonder and to imagine what might be contained and what might be revealed beyond the frame. Whether one looks in or looks out, it is the mystery of what is unconsciously imagined and ultimately consciously revealed, that give personal meaning to a particular photograph. This "Unconscious Level of Seeing" creates unique thoughts and feelings that are projected into the frame. We consciously see the ornamental and formal properties of a window or a doorway or an archway. Imagination then creates its own unique story from which memories, feelings and emotions emerge.
