Just removed the whole bio that has been gathering the dust here for the past couple of years.

I'm really not that active here anymore. I do come a few times every month, but I have moved on to different websites, and in particular which is by far the best nature photography website available anywhere.

I still have a lot of memories from dA. But I have a lot of things to do elsewhere now.
I cannot think of creating art without sharing it.

I do not possess what little art I am able to create because I believe a human being hardly possesses emotions unless to share them, and only witnesses stories to tell them.
The problem is, I don't succeed in making much emotion come out of my pictures.
Nothing more than a quick look, an slight insight into the part of reality I feel worth capturing. Even Alexandre Deschaumes is not satisfied with most of his work for the same reason, and what am I compared to him?

A picture often evokes its creator many emotions, but only because he knows everything about that picture. Without such knowledge of the context and nature of the image, it doesn't quite work.

I once read: "A picture without a story is like a body without a soul".
It is true emotions often come from the soul and are bound to the story behind the picture.
But it shouldn't be behind.
The picture should be genuinely united to the story through the emotion. To get something like the Oversoul of photography.
God, I think I'm a Transcendentalist...

No word should have to be restraining a perfect picture to something too much related to one's self.

Can I be a mute storyteller?

I would like anyone to be able to make up their own stories about my pictures, using the feeling I expressed with the photograph as a basis for their imagination.
Words sometimes cannot express a complex emotion.
Thus I would like to be able to show such unpronounceable emotions on a picture.
Then I would be mute in words only.

Yet isn't that goal unreachable?
And do I even really want to reach it?

I don't like anything quite as much as using words and communicating through them. I don't think I am ready to separate them from any image.

And if there are things words can hardly express, how could photography measure up to it?
It would mean writing using photography is a more effective means of expression than writing with words...
I will have a hard time convincing people about that (starting with me).

Finally, my idea would most likely be realistic when the time comes for lenses and cameras to be as effective as the human eye and able to fully support the amazing tool which our brain is.

Well, three seasons have come and passed since your message, and I have never thanked you. Sorry about that. I've just been busy elsewhere...
Even that late at the party, your message makes me glad. Thank you, and best wishes.
