Does it do more 'harm' than 'good' to give abstract photographs a title saying what it is a photograph of? I fear that reality-titles stops the viewer process of the photo as what it is becoming in the mind and switches to the list of what "it is a photograph of."

the self

the self, originally uploaded by zen.

Here's the thing. I'm now reading Susan Sontag's book of essays "On Photography" and i realize i want to, have to, begin writing my thoughts on the how and why of photography. My upcoming show at Harvest Records has made me re-evaluate and analyze what i'm doing as an artist. So, today's photo starts with a photo of the self.

I have many reflection shots so there's a bunch of photos that include me but - as i see them - aren't necessarily about me.

More thinking... more grokking...
