I could go on making images like these which are ones that I made while walking at Homewood. I make images like them just to have something to work with while entertaining myself; but, I am tired of photographing the same scenes over and over, though I do try to compose, or crop, them differently.
I would prefer to figure out how to make images with feeling. Images that express my thoughts and emotions, but I don’t know how, other than to do them in B&W. One of the types of photography that always interested me was the intent of the photographers who made up the Provoke period in Japan. Here is a link to one of the descriptions of the foundations beneath the Provoke period.
I have always thought that photographs should have a purpose or theme or message or story. My biggest problem is that I am a very emotionless person. I have a very flat stable emotionless personality. I don’t understand how to express emotions, show my feelings, laugh, etc.
How can you show emotions without images of people who do express emotion? I don’t think you can except through what you photograph. For example, if all I photographed were disasters resulting from the stupidity of mankind and global warming effects you would have a pretty good idea of how I felt about mankind.
