If I could tell it in words...
Isadora Duncan is credited with the quote, 'If I could explain, I wouldn't need to dance' and I see that tucked away in the back of my now tattered copy of 'On Photography' there is a similar quote by Lewis Hine: 'If I could tell the story in words I wouldn't need to lug a camera.'
I really enjoy the challenge in these trans-media (?) comments ... well, Isadora, what if you could? What would you say?
And so, last night, on a long train journey home, I amused myself by watching TED podcasts. I think I must have saved this performance by Eric Lewis by accident but I soon found myself thinking:
'I want to take pictures like he plays the piano.'
