This is what made me want to become a photographer when I was 17, and led me to quit a physics degree for fine arts.
Seeing the world without seeing the world, revealing shape and meaning that is distinct from assumed shape and meaning. I've always been attracted to looking very closely at things, to try to find out what is really going on beneath what we assume is real.
The older I get, and the closer I look, the more it appears that nothing in the world has independent substance of its own.
Beneath the surface of forms, if you really very diligently and very hard, there's nothing there.
