Shit happens

Dinu Lazăr

Everything on Earth started as an idea in someone's head. Without ideas and imagination, we'd have nothing.

The same applies to art and photography for exactly the same reason. (Nature may represent God's imagination, but that's a different discussion.)

Shit happens, but art must be created.

The most critical thing about photography is to envision the final result in your mind's eye before you snap a shutter. This is called previsualization. If you know what you want, you can change things while you're still doing them to ensure you get what you want.

Ken Rockwell


Regarder une photographie

Dinu Lazăr

«Nos perceptions produisent en nous des images. Cette évidence ne souffre d´aucune contestation. Regarder une photographie est ne regarder rien d´autre qu´une image»
[Alain Coulange]


le temps

Dinu Lazăr

" L'important c'est que la photo possède une force constatative et que
le constatatif de la photo porte, non sur l'objet, mais sur le temps."

Roland Barthes


painted with feeling

Dinu Lazăr

A picture

Dinu Lazăr

A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it?
Ernst Haas


The magic is in seeing people in new ways

Dinu Lazăr

"I think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody's face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways."
Duane Michals


pay for it with your life

Dinu Lazăr

Chance is the one thing you can't buy. You have to pay for it and you have to pay for it with your life, spending a lot of time, you pay for it with time, not the wasting of time but the spending of time.
Robert Doisneau


Truth isn't

Dinu Lazăr

Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't.
Mark Twain


It took me 40 years

Dinu Lazăr

It took me 40 years to find out that painting is not sculpture.Paul Cezanne


When I say

Dinu Lazăr

When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph. Annie Leibovitz
