The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. ~ Aristotle
Artistotle nailed it! The arts are truly about how it makes you feel – and if you feel nothing, then it has failed. As a photographer, I believe that the mark of a great photographer is one who is not just recording a scene – its one who has an eye to see an emotive moment and the ability to capture it in a way that expresses those emotions well.
