Photographing the Imagination - or is it...Imagining the Photograph?

Albert Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” Coming from a guy who had some serious knowledge that is a powerful statement.

One of the things that stimulates imagination is, of course, travel. The unknown lands that lie in wait. People, landscapes, colors, architecture, the ever-present but never-the-same-sunset (so popular among the blossoming photographers…), the promise of change and the joy of coming back home. As someone who travels for a living (Im running around today preparing for a trip off the coast of Brazil with my friend Mike Horn tomorrow – standby for more on that), I can say that my love for the journey and curiosity of what is around the next bend remain undiminished. And while the travel photograph can be a cliche, it is undeniable that a great image of an undiscovered destination can transport you to a new experience – and light up your imagination.
