Recently we spent a few hours in the park celebrating the coming of summer. Jackie took a multitude of lemon drop photos. It was originally planned for a video, but upon seeing the final work I just fell in love with the instantaneous shots.
There is an active discussion these days about film vs. video for weddings and events. While it is true they both give unique and important angles to remembering an event, I am partial to photography. I love how a photo captures such enormous depth in its perfectly still form.
Tim Walker in a recent interview said, “Stills are powerful because they freeze the moment…” When I remember celebrations it’s often the quiet, frozen moments which seem most powerful.
