"...To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy. To take photographs means to recognize -simultaneously and within a fraction of a second- both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis..." - Henry Cartier-Bresson
I have lived photographing everyday reality over 24 years. I started by accident in 1988 when a friend of my sister, who was studying advertising, showed me an album with photos of the Image Bank.
What I saw changed my life, images that resemble artworks. Some time later, a friend of mine came to visit me at Ft. Lauderdale , USA , where I lived. He intended to buy a reflex camera and we went together to see it at a small business in Miami. When first looking through the lens the world seem anew, not because this changed reality at all, but because it brought a new angle to my point of view. Within the limits of this rectangle I saw the elements of life combine in the fraction of a second.
The quality of a photograph depends not on the quality of the camera, neither on the quality of the lens, nor on the software use to edit the image, nor on the printer or the paper in which the image is printed... It depends on the warmth of the glance of the photographer.
