This is a question that is always in my head, in my mind.
If I have to answer this question quickly, I would say: “To go beyond photography is to be (to try to be)” a Josef Koudelka “in my life here on earth.”
Just to say something about this great photographer’s magnificent photography: I am struck by his ability to make use of empty spaces in his frames. But there is so much more to say about Koudelka’s photography, and I may not be the best person to say. I leave this to other great masters!
