Finding Style: the dilemma of photography

Apunto al blog de Dean Bradshaw y a su post Finding Style: the dilemma of photography. Me gusta mucho la cita que escribe de Chuck Close, así que la repito aquí:

“Here’s the dilemma and the strength of photography.

Its the easiest medium in which to be competent, but it’s the hardest medium in which to have personal vision which is readily identifiable. There is no physicality to a photograph…there is nothing you can point to and say “this is the work of that artists hands”.

So then…how do you make a photograph that somebody immediately knows as the work of a particular artist?

Well that is a very difficult and complicated thing to come up with – and when someone really ends up nailing down a particular kind of vision to such an extent that they own that vision – you know they’ve really done something.”


– Chuck Close (American painter and photographer who achieved fame as a photorealist.)
