Every picture tells a story, but what’s interesting is that every person who sees the picture reads a different story. Stories that are crafted by our own memories and imagination.

A few tips for telling stories with pictures:
Rule 1. All stories are about characters. The characters may be human or not, but they must have an element which catches the attention of the viewer and provokes thought.
Rule 2. All stories are about emotions. It is not just about what you see in the picture, but about how it makes you feel.
