Inspiration from THEIMAGEDECONSTRUCTED: Rob Finch

I always read theimagedeconstructed.com where it  examines the mental approach behind images.

Here’s an excerpt from the spotlight on Rob Finch’s documentary:

“The reality of any intimate story is that you must give of yourself if you expect people to open up to you. It’s simple advice but difficult to do. You are there because of your job. They are living their real life. If you are not empathic to them, you will never gain access to their lives. Those feelings must be real and genuine. You cannot fake it. Never think about your subjects as compositional elements. Respect them. Give of yourself. Treat them how you want to be treated. It’s basic life stuff and they teach it in preschool.”
