On a quantum level the laws of physics overflow our cartesian existence. If we imagine the subjects as quantum particles, the photographer would attend an experiment in the Nature’s laboratory.
I especially like the flower in the pond. It has been almost a miracle to do it. The rest of the series has no special interest but can be seen without further ado. I like the one of the girl who doesn’t have her feet on the floor and watch a guy who looks in the same direction. Today I did something with the shadows. The projected branches in the sand… Summer, days, casual things.
With the heat people slow down. Everything flows in slow motion. And summer days lengthen to the incredible. My advise: cold water, sunglasses, and walk in the shade. It is not convenient to look at the clock because then the rush comes. Enjoy your time.
We have everything on the beach: horizon, sea, sky, and sand. In between, like ants out of the nest, human figures play, enjoy water, sunbathe, heat up, enjoy leisure time to be happy, and most importantly, are in a great scenario to be photographed.
We agree that black and white photography does not represent reality. It is a vision of the world that has annulled the color to recreate itself in the gray scale, the monochrome or the monotone. Whatever option the photographer has chosen, there is also the eye, what he chooses and captures. Within this series you can see a bearded bride, a Levitating Menina, a cyclist dog, and other photographs that would enter into a photographed reality canon due to its likelihood.
The street photographer can be seen as an extension of the flâneur, an observer of the streets (who was often a writer or artist).
Some of Garry Winogrand’s best photographs are those of people observing something that is not seen in the image. It is fascinating. It allows the observer to think about what the protagonists are looking at, then establishing a mock reconstruction of the real world where the imagination of the public is put to work for some good one: it is, they must be in, and so on. With this resource today I have proposed to photograph people who look without showing the focus of their eyes. Thanks, Garry!
