About the Book
sixteen days in japan. a photo story by >>areml
MY MISSION STATEMENT [a work in progress] when i first started taking pictures i was very careful, obsessed really, to taking a perfect picture. at school i was always occupied with technical precision and knowledge. now it's the opposite. when i make a picture, i try to remember to put the imperfections in. a good photographer knows that exposure, focus, the best equipment, possibly even light, don't make a good picture. it's the presence of the photographer. it's the way he/she understands the moment and the context and the setting. a good photo shouldn't just represent a moment, it should tell a story.
