In this episode of the Perceptive Photographer I am reminded by my love of movies that while not all my favorites make the AFI top 100 movies of all times doesn’t distract from my love of some films. While I think we evaluate movies that are classics and and our own favorites differently, shouldn’t we do the same with photographs. It makes sense to think about the context of the photograph, the purpose of the photograph and the intention as you provide a critique.

Though the process, I was reminded of some of the concepts that Minor White and Walter Chappell discuss in their 1957 Aperture article Some Methods for Experiencing Photographs  in combination with some of my own experiences we focus on how to look at all photographs regardless of type and attempt to develop a more consistent and stronger method to understanding the image.
