For me, as an artist, not only is the image important, but also the title. I have always believed that the title of a photograph is an added dimension to an image. Often I have the title of the shot before I even take the picture – in essence, the title makes my image. I think it stems from the first picture I ever saw that “moved” me.
It was a simple photograph of a pair of feet by Annie Leibovitz and the title was “Pele’s Feet”. The image alone is perhaps not so special but with the added title, a whole new meaning evolved – a portrait of arguably the world’s most famous feet. Since then I have always strived to find a title that makes my viewers think one-step beyond the image.
