Re: Ralph Gibson: an exhibition of his work

Point of departure translates to having a purpose in photography. If you go out hoping to find something that grabs your eye, you're more likely to end the day with mediocre images suitable only for the garbage bin. On the other hand if you leave the house with a specific objective, eg equal balance to light and darkness in the mode of Ralph Gibson, you're more likely to have a positive outcome.
Now here's the tricky bit, that being to find your own voice photographically, and not to copy others.
