    They tell others what tends to catch my eye, what I am most likely to observe, and what interests me visually.

    They may give hints about the rest of my personna, but not much more.

    I learned long ago that you cannot accurately predict anything outside the realm of photography about people, based solely on reviewing their work. You need additional context, and biographical information.

    If I have context and additional information and personal experience with a person, exposure to their photography tends to improve the depth and breadth of my understanding of them.

    tough one. Good luck finding the pattern. I take pictures of family, spaces, street, my surroundings. I want to remember the moment....

    "As a Person" ?
    IMO, Artistic expression says very little about who or what we really are. In my life the values that I hold, and the way I treat others is "The Person" that I am. History is filled with great artists that were lacking in good character traits, and vice-versa.
    The great are seldom famous, and the famous are seldom great...
