Seeing—Where the Process Begins

The best part of us is not what we see, it’s what we feel. We are what we feel. We are not what we look at… . We’re not our eyeballs, we’re our mind. People believe their eyeballs and they’re totally wrong…”
   ~ Duane Michals (1932– )

Seeing, where the process begins.
Seeing... Is the Start... Feeling is the Next Step or Not.

I love reading Daune Michals’s words and viewing his works. I ran across his work as a grad student and he moves beyond seeing and each work evokes a feeling. He takes the viewer pass the mere obvious and causes the viewer to feel the work and carry it beyond the gallery’s wall or outside a book’s cover.

Ansel Adams or any great photographer has this gift to record what the eyes don’t see or record what we miss.
