“The camera sees more than the eye, so why not make use of it?” – Edward Weston
“The fun thing about photography— augmenting our vision and reality” – Eric Kim
Wise words from Weston and Kim.
Thinking seriously about them, I reviewed these three photographs I made a long time ago.
The first photo I ask myself: are they really sand dunes or a glacier?
The second picture I ask myself: is it a night photo? The answer is no: it was made in the morning. Shortly after sunrise.
The third is the result of an exercise that I always do by photographing through different translucent materials. In this case, through a glass brick that is used sometimes put in walls in our houses so that the light can enter the room.
Interesting really: through photography we can do / create many things: create different realities that we see; our own reality. We can also increase or distort reality.
