Today’s quote is from Wayne Miller.
“I think good dreaming is what leads to good photographs.” I have to agree. When I let my mind run free pursuing ideas for a different photographic image good things happen. I believe that’s because in dreamworld, whether it be day-dreaming or full on dreaming while in the sleep state, there is no negativity. No one saying, “You can’t do that.” Or, “That’s not possible.” Or, “Nobody will like that.” The ‘Negative Nellies’ are not present in dreams. Now the only secret is to bring that idea out and execute it before anyone has a chance to knock it! Dream on!
I didn’t know who Wayne Miller was, I just enjoyed the quote… which led me to find out Wayne was born in Chicago, was a combat photographer in WW II working in the unit with Edward Steichen. He was also a contract photographer for Life Magazine and was president of Magnum Images for a time and helped with the Family of Man photography exhibit in NYC. In other words he was a trail blazer for photographic imaging. Wayne made it to the age of 94 before passing away in May of this year.
