Photophile


Photophile (noun) Origin: Dictionary of Obscure of Sorrows | A person who loves photography.

This is an obscure word but supposedly, this came about after deriving it off from the word “photophilic” which is an organism that loves or seeks light — which is related in a way to how cameras function.

“Photography is the story I fail to put into words.”
— Destin Sparks

The magic of photography.  I have always loved photographs.  The ones I have taken, as well as the ones others have taken.  They move me.  I can find a story in every photo.

“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
— Alfred Stieglitz

I believe that we take it all for granted.  I think those of us who love photographs sometimes forget there are people around the world who have never seen themselves in a picture.  Taking instantly shareable pictures has been an amazing opportunity to share some of my favorite photos with the people who inspired the picture.

“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
— Annie Leibovitz

Nepal was really the best place to do this.  People loved having their pictures taken and then looking at the pictures. It was also a really cool place just for the photo itself.  A super magical place to see, share, and re-see.
