About "Scene Through a Glass"
“Seen through a glass, darkly.” is a statement that our view of reality is always imperfect, incomplete, perhaps even reversed — but the biblical quotation goes on to imply that our vision will eventually clear. Is that intended literally or as metaphor? In either case I doubt it.
The “glass” through which you see these scenes is the camera’s lens, a window, a looking-glass (mirror), and often all of the above.. Once in a great while — these photographs span well over 20 years — I see through a glass, darkly, a scene both so enigmatic and so alluring that I cannot resist photographing it.
