I’ve always admired statues in the same way I love a great photograph. They are, by virtue of their creation, static and unchanging. They capture a frozen moment. Like a photograph, however, they are capable of an array of different meanings and interpretations.
It is the viewer, as much as it is the artist, who decides what it is they are seeing. A mood, a story or even the light can change how we feel about what we are looking at. I think that’s why I love wedding photography so much. The combination of beautiful photos and the emotions felt by the happy couple when they view the memories of their day, are what make the photos ones they will cherish for ever. I’m not Rodin, but like him I get great pleasure from the feelings my work evokes.
