In other words, ‘the decisive moment’ one of the most talked about concepts in the history of photography. I am a disciple of the decisive moment if it’s possible to be one and it goes to the fundament of my practice. In simple term’s it means taking the photograph at the precise moment that defines what you are trying to photograph. You’ll notice this for sure when you look at action sports photography. Blink and you miss it surely applies and the most stand out images from the world of sport are the most dramatic, the most memorable such as Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ goal at the 1986 world cup.
I argue, and I hope my work shows it, that the decisive moment is as vital in documentary photography. A large part of an MA is in forming your style and becoming more analytical of your own work.
