Seeing Time
Photography, because it starts faithful to reality, work with the real world in such a way that the World of representation and the World of objects do not appear to be different. Photography supports and encourages this and we enjoy the illusion. Adding to this that the printing of a photograph is an effort consist of both certain set processes and certain interpretive processes.

In the interpretive area life's experiences are brought into play and help to give the result a "living" quality. It is here that the art of photography becomes obvious and the printer "experiences" the photographic subject anew.

Once, years ago, I spent days printing photographs for an exhibit of San Francisco before the turn of the century; before the earthquake and fire of 1906. While printing these photos I needed to "enter" the world they represented to adjust the highlights and shadows and bring out the details of the photograph.
