Chapter One (Wood/Karr)

Notes from the 1st chapter of The Practice of Contemplative Photography by Michael Wood and Andy Karr.

“The word contemplate sometimes means to think things over, but when we use the term, we are indicating a process of reflection that draws on a deeper level of intelligence than our usual way of thinking about things.” -p3

The work of the great masters of photography is grounded in clear seeing. (paraphrased)-p5

Recognizing that the reader may have her own list, the authors’ list of masters of photography (also on p5) includes:

Alfred Stieglitz
Edward Weston
Tina Modotti
André Kertész
Paul Strand
Henri Cartier-Bresson
Robert Adams
