“the real is not at the exit or at the arrival but in the middle of the crossing.” (joão guimarães rosa)

This thought is (very) valid for me in photography. The (many) trials (and errors) are (most of the time) more interesting than the end result.

Of course, the end result is always important in photography – otherwise, what would photography be? But, ‘the middle of the road‘, ‘the crossings‘ – the trials and errors, the stories of each photograph which for years and years we tell – are the points that fill us with pleasure.

“One is always in the dark, only in the last light up the room. I say! the real is not at the exit or the arrival! he is available for us is in the middle of the crossing ”. (João Guimarães Rosa in ‘Grande sertão: veredas’)
