A still photograph is something which you can always go back to. You can put it on your wall and look at it again and again. Because it is that frozen moment. I think it tends to burn into your psyche. It becomes ingrained in your mind. A powerful picture becomes iconic of a place or a time or a situation.
I’ve never thought of myself as a ‘travel photographer’ the way people like McCurry are, just occasionally I go to places and of course take photographs while I’m there.
