Peter and I are often surprised when we do a joint edit of our images after a photography excursion. We can be in the same place, at the same time, and yet interpret a subject so differently. In this installment of “He Saw, She Saw,” we are roaming Hollywood Boulevard with our infrared cameras photographing one of our favorite subjects – street signs.
I think there are two reasons for our visual differences:
- I tend to hone-in on elements; Peter sees the whole scene. This probably explains his love for wide-angles, and mine for telephotos.
- I prefer re-interpreting reality (this holds true for all aspects of my life) – cutting things off, quirky angles, abstraction, etc; Peter likes capturing reality.
I think the following images are telling in how we “see” differently. Maybe someday we’ll experience a freaky-Friday-like phenomenon, switch lenses and see what chaos ensues.
