Photography has its origin in the early 19th century. The “camera obsura” has revolutionized the world. But it has a shortfall: the camera sees but doesn’t think. The message and interpretation of an image is highly subjective. Years ago I started to write about my photography work. Some of these personal interpretations about my images are under ‘Through the Lens’. I expanded my writing into other subject matters which I publish under ‘World Affairs’ and ‘Thoughts & Ideas’. The category ‘Newsroom’ includes third party editorial and news reporting from journalists around the world.
