Notes, Thoughts, and Observations
Photography is a way of inhabiting silence.
The photograph is a silent zone to which the photographer and, then, the viewer bring the music of their lives.
Music and pictures come first. Language comes later.
The most devalued form of language can be found in expensive art catalogues.
Beyond irony or satire, the emptiness of contemporary art is more often than not just, well, empty, leaving us to look for ideas and content elsewhere.
Only if looking is empty can it subsequently be filled with memories, stories, and ideas.
Can one be clever in looking or can one only be clever in words?
Photography is the continuation of looking by other means.
Photography is looking undressed of ideas.
