Trios No 86
From the Trios II collection
(Intro from Trios I)
There is no rational reason to put together a collection on trios.
I certainly had no collection like this in mind all the years I was shooting.
However, as I look through the years of shooting I keep finding trios. At a certain point I began actively looking for them.
Trios are obviously more complex than the earlier collection of Pairs and Couples (#104). There are more possibilities of surprise with trios, the images can offer more visual payoffs, more interrelationships.
I have never said to myself, “I’m going to shoot a trio.” They just happened.
I’m reminded of a wonderful quote by the great Ernst Haas: “We do not take pictures. We are taken by pictures.”
By the way, don’t hold your breath waiting for quartets.
