Sometimes I stumble upon a photographer’s portfolio and immediately, I am lost inside the photos. I can be sitting right here in my living room, but it feels like I’ve been transported to another world. Such was the case when I found Zachary Su’s photographs of Taiwan. Plus, I’ve been drawn to images of windows lately anyway (case in point) so I was especially enraptured by his work with light and windows.
Sometimes, when I see pictures of certain places in Central and Eastern Europe, I have such an emotional and physical reaction. It tears me up inside; it’s so hard for me to explain. It’s so hard for me to put into words.
It’s like it makes me very happy and it makes me very sad and it makes me not quite sure where I belong.
And the fact that I can’t ever seem to write about it properly haunts me, the way these photographs do.
