Surface area

Is a photograph just surface? Or can it penetrate deeper? Can it convey texture and  layers of meaning?

  1. Great images, and those are deep questions. I suppose if images relate to our memories and experiences, if they echo and evoke a response within us then yes, they are more than just surface. Maybe?? Now you’ve got me thinking…

  2. the beach surface really is the perfect picture when a hard working day comes to an end, so relaxing…

  3. I hope an images can convey layers of meaning, because most of mine are dripping with them. It’s probably not always obvious, though.
    Lovely images, Emily.

    • I think they can, but that’s the thing… it’s not always obvious and it is harder to do with photography. I think you achieve this well though. I love your images and writing – I’m very much enjoying following your blog!
