Photography is a Powerful Influence On The Human Soul

I have decided that my studio needs to be cleared of some of its contents and, in this now wholly digital age, the decision has been made to archive all of my  “Analogue” library of images. There are shelf after shelf of transparencies and negatives to sort through. For a fact I know that I have not looked at the majority of them for many years, and will certainly never want, or need to look at them ever again. SO WHY IS THIS SO DIFFICULT? ………………………………………………….                                                                         There are shoots whose location is now long forgotten, pictures of people I don’t remember and studio shots taken in studios long gone. I have to make way for todays medium in the studio and although I do not really need a single one of these “Analogue” images I am struggling to understand why this endeavour is becoming so emotionally charged and difficult to action. I even find myself becoming a little weepy…………………… Photography can be a powerful influence on the human soul…
