Editorial features and photo books —whether they be printed or digital—tell stories that are the perfect vessel to contain or create a new ideal. These picture stories reflect the true nature of photography and its power.
The sequence of photographs in a magazine or a photo book describe what certain places and events look like; they suggest an intention.
Meaning arises as much from the relationship between photographs, as from what happens in them.
For comprehension, the meanings and ideals that are created must be coherent, otherwise understanding is frustrated. The complexity and contradictoriness of lived experience is an essential element, or else credibility is strained.
Our dwellings and workplaces are the realms from where stories are born, places are made this way.
