Pretty simple.

facts and figures

Photography is pretty simple stuff. You just react to what you see, and take many, many pictures.

(Should I add an image border to be considered as a more credible photographer…?)

Talking about being naive.


(Lately I was thinking about some final judgement by a young art ‘teacher’, concerning my pictures. She said my pictures were ‘flat’. I asked what she meant. These pictures have no ‘depth’. I asked again, not satisfied by this definition. Irritated she said: ‘No depth means these pictures are flat’. That day, about 5 years ago, I became aware that art/photography teachers are not really interested in art or photography. I’ll tell you within another 5 years what they are really interested in. Let start by tagging them….)

Talking about clichés.

The biggest cliche in photography is sunrise and sunset. – Catherine Opie

And autumn.
