“All story is manipulation.”

I love this quote from Ken Burns.

Jean-Luc Godard said “Photography is truth, and cinema is truth 24 times per second.” Ken Burns turns that on its head with his perspective on storytelling, along with his personal inspiration in the stories he chooses to tell.

And it rings so true – even in our photos. We manipulate the audience/viewer based on the story we decide to share – be it a single frame or a feature length production. Regardless of the facts present, we are manipulating those facts based on the facts we choose to include. Whether it is framing, crop, spoken words or something else, our creative vision shapes the stories we tell.
