Peter Turnley: Reflections on Life and Photography

Peter Turnley is one of my favorite photographers. He recently reflected on Instagram that he doesn’t take time for granted:

Every moment counts. This is in part what I love about photography - a celebration of moments. Like atoms and neurons, moments are almost infinite - we must seize them. ⁣

I have now been making photographs for 48 years. Almost a half of century of moments to share, explore, review, and reflect upon. I have no idea how many years of moments are left, but what I do know, is that one day at a time, there are moments left to live, and I intend to make sure they count. ⁣

Turnley has worked in over 90 countries. His photographs have been featured on the cover of Newsweek 43 times. You can see some of his work on his website.
