Rodin’s The Kiss. Being in the Rodin Museum in Paris gave me an opportunity to try to ratchet down photographically to the essence of this sculpture. As a whole, it is absolutely stunning
But to take away from the whole, as hard as that was, made it even more beautiful
to see limbs, muscles, the nuance of a body, was an exercise in removing the “extraneous”, as a sculptor does until he has the image come forth out of a block of stone.
Taking away to see the essence in photography is not easy at times.
