A Quotation

Chatting with a peer in Darwin who has just completed their Honours Year, made me dig up my own Masters project, which I completed in 2002. At the end of the project is a series of notes I added post production, here's one I'd like to share.

“A fine print is the culmination of a complex sequence which begins with the recognition of the visual event. To produce such a print, the photographer must make a negative that is properly exposed in relation to the pre-visualised image...This sense of fine, almost unseen, detail and clarity allows the viewer to experience subtle differences in reality. Each viewer brings to the photograph their own personal sensitivities and the “fine print” allows the viewer to more easily intuit the connections existing between the viewer, the photographer and the photograph”
