Charles Caleb Colton once wrote that, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” I say this because recently I stumbled into a dramatic photograph of a man holding a book with a thought-provoking caption. It struck a chord in my mind.
The photograph was taken by Susan Licht and posted on Monochrome: For Black and White Lovers. Her work was so intense, I decided to imitate her work with my own. If you click this link, it will connect you with Ms. Susan Licht’s black and white photograph.
As you all know, photography is all about telling a story. That’s the goal of every photographer that takes his or her work seriously—tell a story.
