Entry at PV photo thread

This year World Press Photo competition is nothing but a big fiasco – 20% of finalist images disqualified and one of the winners being accused by the portrayed city itself {with some important arguments} of staging his photo essay – which is something it was bound to happen.

First of all the idea of making an exhibition with photojournalism material is… “indelicate”. Despite I only have attended to 1 WPP exhibition and was because at the time I was working at the host museum and of course curious, it was immediately clear to me that hanging a huge print of a tutsi man with his head deformed {by a machete stroke or something} and all stitched up in “the temple of most elevated craft done by humans” – museums are yet another story for a better occasion – was something rather contradictory and literal that I would want to avoid in the future.

I’m all for improvisation, instinct and guts… but sometimes it seems that there’s a lack of thought and analysis for more delicate matter. Example; when I started with photography everybody reverenced Sabastião Salgado. Then I saw the pictures and thought to myself “these guy is a technical monster”… it took me some time before I understood that despite all the plethora of aesthetics and rhetoric bullshit there was something brutally cynical underneath the immense skills and wonderful technique; he was earning money, getting famous and respected for anesthetizing people’s misery.
I hope nobody confuses here the work I’m talking about, it is not photojournalism – for which I have a big respect – it is documenting the alienation of fellow humans and elevating that to art. There’s no denouncing, not a true care, the emphasis lays on capturing the moving scene and make it breathtakingly gorgeous.

Anyway I don’t know what S.S. is doing these days and if he ever understood, acknowledged and/or made anything to heal his liability and socio-cultural footprint still present in hollow prizes and “philosophies” as the one hold by WPP. Honestly I also stop caring about him and channeled my energy to understand by my own means the emphatic way we see ourselves, we understand and care for each other; and finally how to express and relate that to a code, a language.

Just in case you think I have big imagination, also as you might want to read it:

Simultaneous observation of the quantization and the
interference pattern of a plasmonic near-field

and of course the indispensable

Richer color experience in observers with multiple
