I'll Follow The Sun

Share

I was listening to the Beatles "I'll Follow The Sun" when I took the above shot on the Florida Turnpike. The title feels appropriate.

A few nights before, I was watching "The September Issue" and remember enjoying Grace Coddington's comment that fashion photography today is too crisp, that it lacks movement. After thinking about this, and going through some of my favorite pieces from Avedon's fashion work, it really struck me that motion is one of the most beautiful things our cameras can give us. Photographs of motion allow us to see the progression of time in a single frame, which I think is pretty spectacular.
