Jonathan Bailey Quote

This guy's view of photography is much like my own:
I use photography as a point of departure. Like Frederick Sommer, I prefer to view a photograph as "a thing seen" in its own right, rather than considering it as a document of "a thing seen." This is a disengagement from viewing a photograph for its content alone. An image has its own reason for being, perhaps possessing its own kind of intelligence.
--Jonathan Bailey, in Camera Arts Feb/March 2001
