Notes, Thoughts, and Observations
According to Walter Benjamin, history breaks down into images, not into stories. Text is merely the rolling thunder that follows the flash of lightning.
Photographs invite us to stray between desire and memory.
The stillness of photography is animated by the imagination of the viewer.
In the profoundest terms, photography invites the photographer, and viewer, to locate themselves in relation to what is photographed. In this sense, photography is about place.
The photographer's job is to produce frames for the viewer's imagination.
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.
