Exploring old and new ways of photography.
I'm trying to understand what I love most, maybe.
What is the modern photography, and what is old-style photography?
Cartier-Bresson loved to catch the key-moment of a situation, the one that better described what he was living, what he was looking at. This was the wonder.
Robert Capa took incredible reportage pictures during the war. Heavy, stunnig, deep, very emotional shots.
Today, what is the wonder? The beauty of models and makeups in glamour? The wonderful details and colors of the modern cameras, helped by post-production? Great macro-shots? HDR?
Roland Barthes says that first the photography shooted the wonderful, the remarkable. Then it started claiming remarkable and wonderful what it shooted. Non meaningful, common and why-shooted? subjects.
The discussion is open.
