Contemporary Photographers

David Hilliard could easily take the individual photos that comprise the panoramic sets and stitch them together electronically. But he doesn’t do that: “This sequencing of photographs and shifting of focal planes allows me the luxury of guiding the viewer across the photograph, directing their eye; an effect which could not be achieved through a single image.” I think what one could learn from this is that good photography has a lot to do with imagination and not with obsession about techniques.
