Where None is the Truth - Photographic Essay

I went with a colleague (John Madden) to Manhattan the other day in order to walk the High Line in anticipation of taking learning walks with high school students throughout this school year. While there I set a single task for myself: to shoot candid images and see what I might learn about perspective and truth.

Richard Avedon said:
“A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth. ”
