H. Jackson Brown Jr
I have taken this quote of the writer H. Jackson Brown Jr. (1940.) and his book “Life’s Little Instruction Book: Simple Wisdom and a Little Humor for Living a Happy and Rewarding Life” from the author’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SigitaPlaydonPhotography), to present some of the other starting points of her photographic knowledge, skills and her photographic journey, aside from the biography that was enclosed with the photography. She is a broadly talented artist, who can skilfully merge together documentary and artistic values in her numerous photographic exhibitions.
Her awarded photograph “Autumn rain”, despite its documentary quality, shows the author’s unordinary approach to this kind of photography, and with this strengthens the photograph’s symbolic meaning. In her artistic procedure, the author didn’t just copy reality, but has given it an authorial seal, and has moulded the moment with a complex photographic story of high artistic and emotional values. Within that story lays the special and the ordinary, the spontaneous and the directed, the visible and the hidden, the real and the mystic.
