Jan 23, Cody rated it really liked it Shelves: If nothing else, an active photographic pursuit in taking as well as viewing pictures reminds us of the importance of looking. Simply and somewhat platitudinously put, it makes us aware of the potential beauty in every situation. Culled pswson a lifetime of photographic documentation, P If nothing else, an active photographic pursuit in taking as well as viewing pictures reminds us of the importance of looking.
His photographs rarely present a traditional subject or narrative, jon, rather, what catches his eye are subtle lines, shapes, and forms–the geometry of environments. Incidental beauty–these subtle but pervasive designs–are what Pawson is keen to share with us.
