The photograph is marked by its poverty. All photos are humble and simple. Most of them are at the same time insignificant. These latter help to reveal the few and rare ones which while remaining humble and simple manage to be important. The photograph is completed in two equally important stages. On the one hand in receiving and on the other in selecting processing and sorting. not accompany the shooting. The technical ease and dominant chatter of photographic production must be balanced with rigor and selfcriticism with spirituality and culture. Most people and unfortunately historians and other art experts too treat photography with subterranean contempt and blatant ignorance.
One more reason along with other varied and more general ones for the photographer to direct his creative ambition towards himself in a fruitful confrontation with himself and not towards third parties in a suspicious transaction or a pointless competition with them. Unfortunately however there is no shortage of young photographers who in the hope of photo background removing escaping from their first artistic dead ends attempt to subvert its above peculiarities in various oblique ways. The most convenient way to achieve this is to move the investment thought process from the second stage to the first or even before it. Thus photography is no longer the food of creative thought but its illustration.
Thinking lets not forget is much easier than photography reconciles without a problem with ignorance and most importantly is much more accessible to third parties. Related to the above method is the disturbance of the balance between the two stages. The stage of selection organization and processing then becomes the most important. Thus the serving surpasses the food. It is also a way for photography to shake off its impoverished nature and heritage and try to make itself significant through a fictional richness. However one of the most popular and widespread methods is the complete denial of the specificity of the medium and the parallel rejection of any other opinion about it.
