Seeing comes before the word; but experience shades how we see. These two qualities are where the paradox lies. How can one understand anything without sensory input? If experience shades what is seen, then how do seeing and experience work concurrently to produce an aesthetic encounter?
Seeing produces experiences and in turn experience tempers what one sees. These events create a language of beauty through data gathered through sensory input. Through my photography this language will reflect political, social, ideological, philosophical, or religious values that are incorporated into the art of a culture.
