My favorite part of any trip is the excitement of the journey that is about to begin — the anticipation, the discoveries, the unknown. Roads and pathways have always represented this to me: the enticing view before your first steps; the hidden destination over the horizon or around the corner, knowing there are many new adventures to come.
How do you tell a story in a single image? While there may not be one simple answer, one aspect has always stood out to me as an observer when looking at photographs made by others. The images I feel the most connected to are those which make it easiest for me to imagine myself in the scene — not someone looking at an image from the outside, but a memory that could have been my own.
From landscapes to intimate documentary moments, your role as photographer is that of storyteller — be mindful of the recipients of that story and allow room for their imagination.
