A world where we have access to more stimulation than ever before and yet an increasing inability to appreciate it.
Capturing a moment on a camera is an enjoyable pastime but more importantly, it shapes the way you look at the worlds. Your eye becomes more attuned to details and colour. You tend to notice the way light falls and how disparate objects interact to produce sudden harmonies.
