“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” -Aaron Siskind -
Forbes Photography, by Nicole Jenelle Forbes
Welcome to the digital age of photography, where people live in an Insta-perfect world of filters, scripted moments and rehearsed emotions. We've all fallen for the allure of capturing the "perfect moment" often at almost any cost (recall those family squabbles during the annual photoshoot?) We've sacrificed living in the moment, in reality, to instead have a permanent record of what we believe our lives should portray. That ends here.
Forbes Photography aims to capture the candid, genuine moments between lovers, families and friends. The subtle, emotional seconds that occur when a father watches his daughter leave for her first day of school, when a mother feels her baby's first kicks, or when a couple are struck with such a genuine love that they start dancing, seemingly for no reason and without a tune, in the middle of the park. Those are the moments that deserve to be held in prosperity and remembered long after the moment has passed.
Let's change what's "perfect" and instead capture what's fleeting; those moments you want to hold close and revisit. Who's with me?
