What Part of History Did This Image Capture? – Los Angeles Fine Art Photographer
I guess we’d all agree that at the flickering of shutter, one split second of history is captured. As I was processing one image taken at the village of Hongcun, China, one with a history of 900 years, my initial intention was to present to my audience a historical setting where life carried on in those hundreds-year old houses, around the water. Yet, interestingly, the same life still goes on in the same buildings by the same (amazingly unpolluted) water. So, which part of history did this image capture? The one that was lived through by our ancestors? Or the one that we are living now?
