Avoiding the Surface

Over at Wired.com, Jakob Schiller has a post up about Lisa Krantz, the San Antonio Express-News photojournalist who recently won her second Scripps Howard Award for photojournalism.

Should you read it? Yes. Of course you should. Why else would I link to it?

“Most people’s lives have a lot of depth and so the photos should show that,” Krantz says. “I want to give the viewer as much of an understanding of a person’s life as possible. That can’t be done on the surface.”

I think what Krantz does so well is what we all aspire to do – to disappear, to become so immersed in our subject that we become part of the background. To become unobserved.
