I carry my camera everywhere I go. Having a new roll of film to be developed gives me a good reason to wake up in the morning.
Photographing means appropriating the thing that you photograph. Means establishing a special relationship with the world that gives a feeling of knowledge, and therefore power.
Learning to see is the longest training in all the arts.
Edmond De Goncourt
It is an illusion that the photos you do with the car .... you do it with your eyes, his heart, his head.
The best photographs are those that would not just finished the film.
. and if these images will never have a meaning for future generations, will be this: I was there, I existed. I was young, I was happy and someone in this world wanted me well enough to make me a photograph.
Dialogue of the film "One Hour Photo"
The eye sees what the mind knows.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.
Those who can not make an interesting photo with a device to be cheap, very difficult to get something better with the camera of his dreams.
Il desiderio di scoprire, la voglia di emozionare, il gusto di catturare: tre concetti che riassumono l'arte della fotografia.
To be good photojournalists should be passed sandpaper on the eyes every morning.
Guy Le Querrec
When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes. When photographing people in black and white photographing their souls.
You do not do only a photograph with the camera. You put in the picture all the pictures you have seen, the books you read, the music that you hear and the people that you loved.
You need to feel involved in what carves through the viewfinder (....). Photographing is recognizing at the same time and in a split second a fact and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that express and signify that fact. You put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart. It is a way of life ....
Find something new, something that no one could have imagined before, something that only you can find because, in addition to being a photographer, you are a human being a bit 'special, able to look in depth where others would pull straight.
If the photo is not good, it means that you were not close enough.
Photography is a visual editing system. It is, after all, with a frame to surround a portion of our visual field while we are in the right place at the right time. Like chess or writing is a matter of choice between a number of possibilities that only in the case of photography, their number is not finite but infinite.
I always thought that photography is like a joke: if you have to explain is not coming well.
I truly believe that there are things that no one can see before they are photographed.
When I make a photograph not reason: even if I can concede that I reasoned before.
There are two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
The important thing is not the camera but the eye.
