Capturing the spirit of the place
Good composition often done very hurriedly
Conveying something of the colour or absence of colour of the place
Honouring the people whose image you are taking
Recording something beyond time
Noticing the idiosyncratic
Describing the absurd
Writing a visual history
Intruding and not intruding
Mastering the light
Consider whether the subject should be in the centre of the frame or placed at one third of the way into the image
The use of the background to enhance the photograph
The photographs on show here are all by Rufus Reade.
As Robert Capa famously said, "If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough."
