Lisa Hogben says….
“I think the camera is a very simple tool. People seem to have the impression that great photographs are just the result of pressing a button at the right time, perhaps even at a random time. But I think the art of photography is the empathy that you have with your subject and the personal vision that you take with you when you point a camera in a particular direction. The immediacy of the medium is what separates it from all others… it’s a very powerful connection that you can make when you communicate and react with your subject in the here and now. The fact that you can document that process while it is happening is the unique thing. To me it’s all about being there, the photo is just the by-product of the encounter.”
