The Allegory & Metaphor in Pixels ~ Kris Vockler

Metaphors and allegories you say? There are those in the photo world who firmly plant two feet and say the best photographs are the ones that are technically perfect and sharp. I contend that they are not. Some may feel this way, and that is just fine. I'm drawn to the photos with less focus and less than optimal aperture settings. The shots that give me the greatest joy to create and view are the ones that tell a story. That story may be an emotion, and with luck it's a metaphor or even an allegory.

Here you have, before you, the first issue of what I hope will be an educational and rewarding exploration of how we see photographs. Not as the viewer but as the creator, and not from me as a teacher (Because I’m not) but as a seeker.
