Why Photograph?: ‘I have something I’d like to say’

Peter Turnley

The essential part of photography is in the mind and heart and soul, with the camera being simply the extension and at the service of those things.

Photography is not a formula and never will be. It is all about having something to say. Most importantly-we don’t control the world and if we could that would be quite boring-responding to what is, is infinitely more interesting. And it is wonderful that we all have something personal and different to say and that we don’t all speak alike.

I practice every day, because many days, most, I have something I’d like to say because the world around me is so worth noticing and sharing.
