It came to mind when having a look to one of my works:
Considered a very important photograph. Stieglitz moved from pictorial works towards what called "straight" photographs. For ending in a sort of abstraction he called "equivalents".
Hat circle versus cross suspenders, division in two classes and strong structure lines are traditionally the elements making it "modern".
Perhaps the world is perceived in a different manner staying on a rope. It was funny getting that guy remaining there as if being on a solid rock.
Photographers, at least the ones capturing photographs rather than staging scenes, develop some sort of selective eye.
When pressing the click all need to be arranged at the desired manner time allows it. But what catches the sight is due to that selective view. Which makes taking this and not that.
Some other visual artists or practitioners might also arrange elements inside a frame, but with a different glance. Not that selective one.
There were two birds
coming and coming
Suddenly, randomly, sequencely.
To make their nest.
Bit after bit.
Sometimes, sometimes?, magic comes by the hand of, ... say magic again. So, say no it's just whatever. Or mean nothing.
Anyhow it's a pretty thing an automatic panoramic view make this kind of automatic "magic". Lovely, isn't it?
By other side ubiquity perhaps it's an unnecessary word in any dictionary... just the property of the impossible.
That's with my very first camera. It was a present that communion day.
Lately, lens removed and pinhole installed, it keeps on making beautiful things... Here, its last picture with a very out of date color film
Coming soon this new fair, for those interested in represented artists and galleries
There are many articles flattering the work of the previous post photograph, published in LIFE magazine, but have a look at this brief comment
So, how good is that photograph
⬜ Very good
⬜ Very bad
