“The camera sees more than the eye, so why not make use of it?” – Edward Weston

“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.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
