Capturing Moments With Lisa Kejonen

August 17, 2011

Josefina

What is a moment?

A memory for one’s self, a story to tell others. It’s all about the narrative. To create an atmosphere; to evoke a feeling.

A photograph is a frozen fragment of time, but it could also stretch into timelessness.

When taking a photograph, you put a piece of yourself in it, your expectations and your relation to that very moment. That part of yourself the narrative; that part makes it personal.

Are you an observer or are you participating? What did you include last time you took a photograph? What did you leave out? Do you wish that very moment would occur again?

Do you visit moments already gone by trough the doors photographs provide you?

    I relive my past via photography all the time. I like to be the observer when I snap to keep my photos pure and true. This is a a very poetical post, Great work Lisa.

    oh man! I LOVE going through old photos. They bring back so many memories and thoughts. I tend to do this quite often and get lost while doing it…sidetracked so often 😀
