Katie McCurdy: What is Photography?


Photography is an endeavor that goes beyond narration. For me, it's a personal attempt at harnessing a memory, like a self-written note or journal entry. It's difficult to define photography, because I view it as an ongoing conversation. As the photographer, we decide whether to send the letter or if the page remains in our journal.

Nice! Photography is an "ongoing conversation". I like it. As a pro fine art photographer, I too believe that every image should tell a story that the viewer can experience, or as Katie so eloquently described it — an ongoing conversation. 

I was unable to visit the linked website of Katie McCurdy. When I click her name, my Firefox browser shows a (rare) warning page that says "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead, Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.katie-mccurdy.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

Firefox does not issue these warnings often. I do not know if they are accurate but I'm afraid to defy their advice.
