the photograph

Zeiss 100mm f2 makro-planar lens

Several months ago, I went to a photography exhibition at The Met. The featured artist was Julia Margaret Cameron, and if you haven’t seen her work yet, I highly recommend that you give yourself the pleasure. The exhibit is open until January 5th, 2014.

Julia’s photography centers around her experimentation with exposure times to create a depth of feeling in her photos that I’ve never experienced before, and her intense passion for her work is palpable in every single piece.

As I was wandering through the hall, I came across this description plaque that not only summed up the entire exhibit, but also my goal to one day capture an image that I feel this way about.

‘The photograph is the embodiment of a prayer.’
