Photography: Searching for the Magic Bullet

One of the photographers I enjoy following is Karen Hutton because she is different. I have never met her, but I feel that I know her and if you check out her blog, I think you will quickly get an understanding of who she is. Be careful though, she is like a human onion. There are layers upon layers, all interesting, but somewhat hidden until purposely exposed. Oh, did I mention to add a bit of quirkiness?!

I like to think of Karen Hutton as a photographer-philosopher because almost every post contains both elements. She recently spoke at Photo Plus Expo 2015 in New York City as a Fuji-X Photographer; a designation of honor given by Fuji.

In her most recent post, A Fuji-full Photo Plus Expo 2015!, she issues the following quote:

“…everyone here is seeking that magic bullet. Wants it. Desires that something ‘more’. But do they know what it is? How will they know when they’ve found it? And what will they do once they have it?”

This quote resonated with me because I know so many people who are looking for a “magic bullet.”

As part of her post, Karen shares two picture quotes that she made using her own images. As JBRish readers know, I really like quotes as evidenced by my daily posting of STATUS QUOtes.

Here are the picture quotes she created with her beautiful images. I like the quotes, I like the pictures. I hope you enjoy them as well.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.
