River 2 develops the idea of the natural world be form, not a literal interpretation of the scene but delivering another experience, a feeling rather than a scene.
Presenting the world around us in ew ways is the job of the creative reportage photographer. As highlighted ours is not to see in creative reportage but to interpret. In river 2 the visceral feeling of the moment is forward, colour and texture describe the movement of the surface. Shadow and light describe the depth and form of the water.
As an observer of the world around us it is up to the reportage artist to present this ion new ways, to make people look again at the day to day.
Within the idea of reportage photography we can bring emotion, the recording of an event in the context of creativity does need to be literal. Within true reportage one needs to be true and honest, no aspect of the scene can be changed if one is representing a real world event, news or feature. But creatively using reportage, viewing the world around us and then interpreting it to give form and emotion is the essence of the fine art photograph.
