Slow Photography, Images with Intent represents Dennis Minty's thoughts after more than fifty years experience as a photographer, with twenty-five as a professional. "Slow photography is an attitude, an approach, a philosophy and a methodology. It’s about slowing down, being thoughtful and reflective, considerate and intentional. It strives towards authenticity and connection and transforms photography from reflex to ritual. With slow photography, we hone our compositions and try to make our images personal, more a reflection of who we are and what we care about...Slow photography goes beyond the impulse to record, to the need to feel more deeply." Minty describes and illustrates why slow photography is important both to the images we create and to our personal contentment. He explains how to go about it so that any shooting experience brings long-lasting fulfilment and he provides simple exercises that reinforce the ideas behind slow photography. Almost ever one of the 240 pages holds one or more photos carefully chosen both for visual impact and for their utility at illustrating the ideas behind slow photography. This book is for anyone who enjoys photography either as a viewer or as a practitioner.
