2011 SPE National Conference
Science, Poetry and the Photographic Image
Since its inception, photography has been inexorably linked to science. The connection is not limited to optics and chemistry. The very heart of the scientific method: exploring, observing and recording, is paralleled in the working process of photographic artists. The objective is often the same in each, to come to a better understanding of and relationship to the world around us. So too is the goal of the poet, to delve into life, embodying and revealing that experience. The language of each relies upon their respective compelling and evocative qualities to convey a shared experience and understanding of our world.
