Ce caut eu la nunta mea?“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”

Shadow and dust

Shadow and dust“I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term -meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching – there would be a vast improvement in total output.

– Ansel Adams, “A Personal Credo,” in American Annual of Photography, vol. 58

The moods and qualities of nature and the revelations of great art are equally difficult to define; we can grasp them only in the depths of our perceptive spirit.”
