Photography originates from the perspective machine and retains its mechanical structure. However, the images produced are the result of a relationship between the world and the observer, which is accomplished in the darkness of the camera obscura. That’s why photographs, unlike the instrument that produces them, are ambiguous images, a product of a meeting and not mere extraction of a frame from a sequence. The talk aim to outline some aspects of the influence of the presence of the photographer, from biographical and personal to the historical and intellectual aspects.
Planar has the pleasure to host one of the members of its scientific committee, proposing – in a riveting lecture / dialogue – an interesting excursus from history of photography to the personal photographer’s point of view.
