Ellen, first congratulation, the picture got noticed and there are many satisfying ratings too! So I seem to be one of the few having serious objections. If you come home from the city, showing this picture - "have a look what I discovered nearby the station" - I would be enthusiastic about. So would I if you would bring back a crazy or a mad brochure of a furniture shop. That you "take " it in the camera in one case or in the hand in the other, that doesnt make the difference. Thats the reason I dont see a great achievement. If you would have caught too the dog, ...ing at the wall a few seconds before for example :-)) I dont make the rules, nevertheless its worth thinking about. RE

Hi Reiner, I know where you're coming from, and I agree, but for me, it was the message of this pic that I wanted noticed... I know this is not a political forum, but this touched a chord for me, and incidentally, I've since left a message on this same wall directing the real artist to have a look. Sometimes you have to play the ratings game to get a message across. we all have our games of one kind or another! Thanks as always for your feedback. Ellen

(oh yes, the reaction-, sorry, rating-system, a wide field). I am thinking about how long a picture is a picture and when it becomes a copy. (Its not the question of the kind of the "message". There are some "explosive" pictures around.) I asked the question myself when I took some pictures of a painting. RE (Excuse my English, corrections requested...) BTW - look what I found: http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=2605414 although I wouldnt call Yani V Luva a friend of mine ...

Not every image is about flexing our photographic muscles. Sometimes we just want to record and disseminate information or ideas. They need not even be "our own," ideas to form an important part of our photographic objective. Moreover, isn't "politics" always bound up to a certain extent, in the photographer's project?


"The most political decision you make is where you direct people's eyes. In other words, what you show people, day in and day out, is political....And the most politically indoctrinating thing you can do to a human being is to show him, every day, that there can be no change."


-Wim Wenders, The Act of Seeing , quoted in: David Levi Strauss, Between the Eyes: Essays on Photography and Politics, 2003:Aperture Foundation, Inc.


Just a little food for thought...
