A new year - and photography, once again
Almost every day I read something about photography it seems to me that in most cases, these writings don´t say nothing about the most simple thing, the nature of photography itself. They don´t say what photography is, perhaps they think that everybody already knows or should know... They don´t talk about the strange feelings some pictures may evoque, they don´t talk about simple things transported in all kind of photographs, they don´t talk about happiness or sadness, about surprise or complicity... Photography can be hard and direct, it also can be full of confusion, ambiguity and paradox simultanities, it is not essential in itself, like language or philosophy, but all matters expressed by or through photography can be and will be, depending on the view of the spectator.
