Photographer Chris Orwig, author of  "Visual Poetry" and faculty member at the Brooks Institute of Photography, shares his insights at the TEDx AmericanRiveria event on the potential of great photography to transcend verbal and written language. 

I might argue that great photography, eloquent speech, profound music and fine writing ALL have the potential to communicate the essence, the universal nature of the world around us.

Why do you think?

    When it comes to photography, I agree with pro photographer David DuChemin: "Gear is good. Vision is better". My goal is to explore ways to see and then photograph "freshness down deep".

    I do believe as photographers we must master principles of composition, camera functions, and photography techniques. And I am always open to expanding my knowledge in these areas. The best book I have read lately in this regard is "The Passionate Photograper" authored by Steve Simon.

    Yet, I am most fascinated by the process, the dignity and art of respecting and revealing subjects in a way that evokes a deep recognition of reunion with the familiar. 

    The sage Canadian photographer Freeman Patterson said, "Seeing, in the finest and broadest sense, means using your senses, your intellect, and your emotions. It means encountering your subject matter with your whole being. It means looking beyond the labels of things and discovering the remarkable world around you."
