Josephine Cardin – Bailaora

 

“I have been asked many times what it is that “look for” when I look through my lens. I do not look for  something, rather I look at  something, someone, some place or event, and attempt to capture the essence, the emotion and the soul of the subject, whether a person or a building.

There is so much beauty in our everyday and by ‘beauty’ I do not speak of conventional beauty, but actually, harmony, truthfulness, and that which is telling. The beauty most of us miss because we are looking down, too busy, or simply too clouded in our minds by preconceptions to see the inspiration and real beauty of our everyday world.”
