What are we looking at here: a satellite photo, a topographical survey shot from a plane, a bird’s eye view of the tundra, or an up-close view of sun-bathed, small, and mossy rock?

What do you want to see? That’s all that matters.

I found these questions and more rolling around my head as I was increasingly fascinated by what I was looking at and how it didn’t match what I imagined I was seeing. This was a perfect shot to answer my need to find images that differentiated seeing from looking. Of course, they depend on how you choose to define them, but the distinction is that one incorporates personal experience and imagination, while the other is just the physical recording of reality. You choose which is which.
