“Images of real life situations have within them the elements of physics, math, art, and the laws of light and time all in one moment, all in one frame. It’s no surprise that a black and white photograph will contain elements that will make for a contemplative composition and seemingly intentional design – not as random as some may believe. Time and time again I see these elements, objects, people “fall together” within the frame of an image as though one had planned it’s layout (or design) very carefully. Yet no more than a call to our mind’s eye was needed to find and respond to a moment in time, the elements there-in, and to focus a lens and click a shutter. We are (the structure and the elements) and therefore we see and respond to them .. even if only by our intuition.” john strazza
