Entry Description:

Vision Drawing (Oramagraphy) is a term I coined for a psychology
of photography and a new way to consider the art of photography.
What you do when you take a photograph with your camera is
photography (light drawing); what you do before, during, and after
you make the photograph is oramagraphy (vision drawing). The
camera is a tool to conceptualize and contextualize your vision
drawings by bridging your "physical vision" (central, peripheral) and
"psychological vision" (metaphorical, symbolic) to achieve your
"photographic vision". To exemplify this concept, I have offered a
series of thematic architectural photographs of buildings in Toronto,
Chicago and Berlin.
