What is "truth"?. .Is it an idea, a feeling, an essence?. Could it also be a photograph?

We all seem, one way or another, to be searching for "truths".. The search is partly limited by our perception.

Most of the information that we process is visual...Although we use all of our senses, vision, especially in color, dominates our understanding.

Our cosmos is in color. .Human color vision varies from person to person and is affected by our emotions. .At the same time, color and contrast affect our emotions. ./We focus with the center of the eye and perceive movement from the edges.

Color has contrast, but it becomes more obvious when the colors are photographically complimentary (cool colors against warm colors etc.). .This phenomenon, called "color contrast", captivates our visual attention the same way that fine black and white photography can make us notice the shape and form of an object.

Photographs are always the visual expression of a very specific point and time. .This can be merely a tone reproduction exercise. .But a great photograph is one that conveys a magic moment and captures the feelings that we take with us from that place in time, that remain with us as "our truth".
