Doubts (9)

While reading and thinking about photography questions come up. Questions I don’t have answers to yet. For now theorizing on photography equals doubt to me. The thoughts are random and incoherent.

For me Photography is closer to poetry then storytelling.

Robert Adams – landscape pictures  involve geography, autobiography and metaphor. Interesting perception.

Visual pleasure vs circulation of ideas.

The idea needs to be served by technique (Harold Evans) – i feel too many contemporary photographers are using the camera as a tool of convenience.

Ideas are not art. Ideas in art can give meaning to a viewer, but an idea is just a starting point. Something has to be created, with craftsmanship, to become art.

Photography may show, it can not explain.
