"In photography, there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” - Alfred Stieglitz
When I first discovered this statement from Alfred Stieglitz it rang true to my own experience in doing photographic work. When you capture an image that has personal meaning for you and one to which you are intuitively connected, that image does have a life of its own. You remember the place where you shot the image, how it captured your imagination and it continues to be one which you enjoy …. it has become its own reality and more than reality in that it is a mirror of your conscious as well as unconscious connection with your subject.
