171. Snail Leaf (Imagination 1)

leaf snail imagination

Most of the photos in this section will require very little in the way of explanation! Our imaginations are fired by what we see, what we connect with, what we remember. It is a bit like having a whole cupboard full of cultural connections and ways of interpreting the world, that we draw on. This cupboard is different for each one of us. Where I see a snail shape on a leaf (admittedly I’m a bit obsessed with snails), someone else might just see a blotch, or a face, or another shape entirely. So our imaginations tap into deep places and memories, stories, and this can tell us a lot about the way we are processing the world around us.
