WE JUST LIKE IT…THAT´S IT by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
What value does a photo have? Or, why, even today, does photography captive so many people? Yes, I could speculate with some profound explanations, we may like to be locked in time, we are vain and we feel happy looking at ourselves or we need to be sure that we have been there or did it, etc.
I have an almost, well…compulsion to photograph the others but, at the same time, I have a terrible fear of a photographic camera in my direction as if the lens was a rifle from the time of the far west. Really. The first thing that crosses my mind is to find some stairways under my feet and disappear the fastest I can. Maybe, that is why I know the importance and care when I steal from others at that moment.
But, regarding that mystery of why we like so many photos, me stealing them, and other people being stolen by me, it is what I do, I did not find a conclusion. I only find a word. Fascination. From both. Observing around and locking a situation that perfectly fulfills the rectangle of the viewfinder, of my camera, in black and white stains with some colors inside that, after, can be seen at all time ahead, is just a fascination to me. Of the others, I can not talk about, those are the wedding photographer… photographs. But if you are interested, you can ask them because the text can not take more information, but, they let me do it…and I thank them very much.
