Rather than observing, photography is to me a way of projecting how you see the world, similar to the psychodynamic tests developed by Rorschach, followers of Freud, Jung, Adler and other psychodynamists, photography is today's best invention to project our psyches to the world. We see what we seek to see.. we project our emotions outside of our minds in objects, moments or situations that we may not be fully aware of.
Similarly to what Dichter predicated about 50 years ago in its theories about advertisement, an image is a projection of internal urges that we most likely are not aware of.
