the moment made eternal

Dinu Lazăr

Photographs of people are often frozen motion - the moment made eternal. In nature photography, the opposite applies ... eternity is frozen and made into a moment. We are granted a glimpse of eternity itself. -Guðmundur Andri Thorsson, "Lost In Iceland with Sigurgeir Sigurjónsson"


The richness of texture

Dinu Lazăr

Photography has an amazing ability to capture the fine detail of surface textures. But far too often these intricate patterns are loved by the photographer for their own sake. The richness of texture fascinates the eye and the photographer falls easy prey to such quickly-caught complexities. The designs mean nothing in themselves and are merely pictorially attractive abstractions. A central problem in contemporary photography is to bring about a wider significance in purely textural imagery. -Arthur Tress, [cited in: Creative Camera March 1968, p. 94]

Searching is everything

Dinu Lazăr

Searching is everything - going beyond what you know. And the test of the search is really in the things themselves, the things you seek to understand. What is important is not what you think about them, but how they enlarge you.
Wynn Bullock
