The photographs speak for themselves telling so much. The different sizing of images through-out is something that I am already starting to think about within my own practice.

And so it begins, leading from my research in Henri Cartier-Bresson I want to explore new and old photographers focusing in particular on documentary.

50-Minute Documentary on HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON: "Pen, Brush & Camera" (1998)

OPEN CULTURE: “The Extraordinary Life and Art of Henri Cartier-Bresson Revealed in 1998 Documentary”

We photographers deal in things that are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished, there is no contrivance on the earth that can make them come back. We cannot develop and print a memory. The writer has time to reflect. He can accept and reject, accept again; and before committing his thoughts to paper he is able to tie the several relevant elements together. There is also a period where his brain "forgets," and his subconscious works on classifying his thoughts. But for photographers, what has gone is gone forever. From that fact stem the anxieties and strength of our profession. We cannot do our story over again once we’ve got back to the hotel. Our task is to perceive reality, almost simultaneously recording it in the sketchbook which is our camera.

In love with this quote!

"MY PASSION has never been for photography "in itself," but for the possibility- through forgetting yourself- of recording in a fraction of a second the emotion of the subject, and the beauty if the form; that is, a geometry awakened by what’s offered.
The photographic shot is one of my sketchpads”.

And so it begins…

New challenges and new ways of sharing ideas, I will no longer just keep whats inside the pages to myself, in a lonely Development book!!!  

I WANT TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD! 

happy blogging. L.
