to keep on looking

Dinu Lazăr

to keep on looking

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.
Brooks Anderson, Once Around the Sun


Worry about your images

Dinu Lazăr

You need to learn to see and compose. The more time you waste worrying about your equipment the less time you'll have to put into creating great images. Worry about your images, not your equipment.
Ken Rockwell, Your Camera Does Not Matter, 2005

* Susan Sontag

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery


it is not it that we see

Dinu Lazăr

“The photographic image… is a message without a code. A photograph is always invisible, it is not it that we see. What the Photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once: the Photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially.” ~Roland Barthes


the core of their humanness

Dinu Lazăr

the core of their humanness

It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness. Paul Strand
