I love this article and very much enjoyed your insightful thoughts on soul stealing photography. I googled this idea after a conversation with my daughter regarding having my picture taken, and how awkward I always feel. Your beautiful words have given me much to think about and most importantly (at this moment) have, to some extent, validated my feelings about picture taking. There is also, much food for thought, as I have a sister who is obsessed with picture taking. It’s weird…I love looking back and am thankful for moments caputured in pictures, but I’ve never been comfortable taking them and certainly not having them taken of myself. Both seem somewhat intrusive and fake…if you will.
Thank you for putting words to some of my feelings. Because I love the joy of reliving memories via photography, I will ponder your words and maybe just maybe become a better, more relaxed subject.
Thank you and be well,
