About Me - Steve Knight Photography

About Me

One of my favorite photographers is Albert Renger-Patzsch, a master of composition who proudly stated he simply photographed  what was in front of him, his efforts "aimed at a photographic photography". In an article published in 1966 titled "A Lecture That Was Never Given", he stated "I believe that in every concept there lies a partial truth which surpasses time".   So by and large photography is inherently mendacious.   And that is the point, that is the beauty.  A fraction of a second taken completely out of context and left to the viewer to determine the meaning, their own meaning.  To create an image that will trigger a memory,  form an idea, start a conversation.  To some extent the photographers original intent is irrelevant.   It's the  impression left with the observer that matters.
