Robert Dawson was drawn to photography because for him, it helped explain the relationship between us and our environment and helped raise public awareness.
I was drawn to photography because I like shapes and colors.
Maybe my reason should be more intellectual, but that's just the truth. I guess that's a good reason to study various artists. I may not have initially been drawn to photography for the same reasons as them, but I can still aim to take photographs for noble use (which I am trying to accomplish in my senior sem project). I am learning that photography is very multidimensional.
