The great photographer Ansel Adams wrote: "You do not photograph with the camera alone. You bring to the act of photographing all the images you saw, the books you read, the music you listened to, the people you loved. "
So the way of seeing reflects everything we are and what we believe - photographs are, after all, a chronicle of the photographer himself and translate the dreams that each one has to tell. In conclusion: when we look at a photographic work, we can also perceive its author. The photographs do not reflect only what is photographed but also the voice of someone dialoguing with others through their specific way of seeing.
The image functions as a portal through which two souls communicate. The photographer's and the observer's. And there can be positive or negative encounters. It all depends on what each one has to tell and what the aesthetic culture of both allows them to see.
And sometimes the difference between a good picture and a mediocre picture is a question of millimeters, a tiny difference. But it's essential.
“I leave it to the audience to evaluate my work. The viewer’s ability to read my images certainly depends on his and her visual education.”- Mario Cuic
