It seems everybody is taking pictures these days. First came digital cameras and then Instagram. It can get a bit annoying at times, but we all are entitled to store our memories any way we want. However, the habit doesn’t make the monk. Having a camera does not magically turn you into a photographer. At the end of the day, those who are capable to move with their pictures are rare.
Margaret Durow is one of them. Through her photographs you can experience isolation, joy, fear…And all that happens at some point of the American Midwest. But it could be anywhere. And that is because everything feels very personal, very touching as if she was pouring her heart and soul into her work, knowing no boundaries, no shyness.
This is some of her black & white work. Part II will be about colour.
