in the way

Dinu Lazăr

I am a photographer in the way you might be a plumber. I like it that way. - Bruce Davidson

something of the soul is gone

Dinu Lazăr

Taking photographs, taking candid photographs, means that the photographer is an invisible man. Whereas there is still a feeling that in having a photograph taken there is loss of face: something of the soul is gone. - Bruce Davidson


However I do offer a few guiding rules of photography

Dinu Lazăr

...Technique is a matter of individual preferences. It bores me. I am only interested in results. However I do offer a few guiding rules of photography.
1/ My essential equipment includes an alarm clock towake up early and a compass to find where the sun is going to be. I also have a small double pointed quartz crystal which sits in my camera bag with the exposed film and helps to increase sharpness!
2/ The best light occurs when I am stuck in the office with the VAT man or have left my camera at home.
3/ If I wait for perfect conditions someone will park a truck in the view.


a moment

I see my photographs as meditations

Dinu Lazăr

I see my photographs as meditations, it is as simple as that. To be understood they must be experienced––felt, seen, known. Consequently, I often use the medium of the landscape, for everyone, in some small way, has some very personal relation to the land––thus they are ready (and willing) to come in to look, if not into, at least at the landscapes I produce. I have trapped them then!


To pass on without pause is impossible

Dinu Lazăr

The man who lives in his eyes is continually confronted with scenes and spectacles that compel his attention or admiration and demand an adequate reaction. To pass on without pause is impossible and to continue after purely mental applause is unsatisfying: some real tribute must be paid. Photography, to many of its addicts, is a convenient and simple means of discharging these ever-recurring debts to the visual world. - Olive Cook
