Photography enables us to see the world differentially, more deliberately, not the mundane utilitarian vision we use every day but a vision that has more reverence for what it perceives. Occasionally that perception can transcend the superficial to reveal something beyond.

Others have said it in their own way. Wynn Bullock was photographer and philosopher in equal measure. He said “Mysteries lie all around us, even in the most familiar things, waiting only to be perceived”.

So for me at least, if there is any purpose in photography then perceiving mysteries could be it.
