Photo Essay

Apperceptions

In western psychology apperception is defined, in short, as the perception of new experience in relation to past experience. In Sanskrit the word is sanskara and can be defined as seeing events through the 'lens' of accumulated impressions.

This series of images are details of objects or occurrences in nature selected for the impression they left upon me. I intentionally avoid identifying the subject being photographed. I believe that the viewer should be free to allow their apperceptions drive them to their own conclusion thus creating a more personal bond with the image given that we all have our unique 'lens'.
