More about Janet.

One thing I don’t think I’ve made very clear in my blog is that I’m not simply a “photographer”. I’ve never studied photography, I don’t have a degree in it, I’ve never sold a single photo. For me, being slotted as a photographer is no different than slotting Professor Stan Gehrt as a “gadgeteer”: his “gadgets” — or “toys” I call them — are radio-collars, and this is his prime source of information: it’s actually his tool for gathering more information. That’s what my camera is for me: a tool for gathering information, in my case, identification information, relationships, family behaviors, family interactions, behaviors at encounters with people and pets and vice versa, etc. SOME of my photos are “good photographs”, earning me the moniker of “photographer”. But the camera is simply a tool — like Stan’s gadgets — for what I really do, which is much more substantive and in-depth than simply “photography”.
