Why photography (part I)

Yesterday I took a break from reading, watching or listening to news stories, including social media. When the sand lies on the seabed, water becomes clear and the sea shows itself for what it really is.

I thought about why am I doing all of this. I mean, I spend most of my time and energies in taking, editing, ordering, and organizing photographs. Now that I’m actually unemployed this is my main and only occupation, the book is my only income.

But there's more thank this...

As I already said here, I think photography is basically an altruistic medium. You actually take pictures for others, always. Of course, you also take pictures just for yourself, but most of the effort goes to permit others to see what you saw, to feel what you felt.

When you wake up early in the morning to take that specific landscape, or you feel the adrenaline to get caught from a subject during a candid portrait, you’re actually doing it for others.

You’re doing it for the community.

Photographing is sharing.

And sharing is caring :)


Now I show you some photos of the past weeks, hope you'll enjoy them.
