Darrell W Staggs - Darrell Staggs Photography

Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?    — Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Welcome to the Photography of Darrell Staggs “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.“ This quote from Henry David Thoreau has provided a definition and direction for my photography in the years since my transition from simply capturing shots to creating images. The Creation of an image must begin first with a creation by Nature or Man, then the eye to Look, the mind to See, and then the finger to push the button to Capture the image. That process has led to a vision that my images must be Personal, and not Predictable. Although the artist was formally trained as an engineer, visitors should not expect extended discussion of the technical attributes of creating images – except, perhaps, the instances where a technical failure has led to a visual success.

 The Artist: Darrell Staggs Mooresville, IN Husband of 39 years, Father of 3 sons, Grandfather of 3, plus 2 golden retrievers Retired chemical engineer after 38 years in petroleum and pharmaceutical engineering.
