I am sending out this special extra message today, because...
I feel deeply moved.
We look at hundreds if not thousands of images every single day. They are everywhere. And due to the fact that we happen to be interested in photography, we are probably seeing even more of them than an average person does.
But how often does it happen that a photograph really (and I mean: truly, deeply, and profoundly) moves you?
How often does it literally makes you stop, makes you think, makes you forget about what you have just been doing and completely drags you in?
How often does it happen?
I am sure your answer is the same as mine:
Rarely. Or maybe... extremely rarely?
But when it does - you will feel something completely different. You will feel like entering a different reality, some new unknown dimension
You will be sure that you are experiencing photography at its very very best.
And that's exactly what happened to me when I looked at photographs by Hannah Kozak from her latest book He Threw the Last Punch Too Hard.
Hannah Kozak achieved something truly extraordinary with her photographs. She opened up her real self, she shared the most private and difficult story of her life she could have possibly have shared.
It does not happen often.
W. Scott Olsen prepared a wonderful review of Hannah's book for FRAMES.
Don't miss it. This is some truly extraordinary photography.
My warmest regards,
