Gabriel Orozco

"Atomists: Making strides (in 2 parts)"
Gabriel Orozco

Ainda a propósito do post «artist using photography», a citação abaixo transcrita de Gabriel Orozco é um bom exemplo do enorme abrangência não só utilitária como também conceptual da fotografia.

“Looking through the lens of the camera doesn't intensify experience. It just frames the object. It's much more intense without the camera. For me photography is like a shoebox. You put things in a box when you want to keep them, to think about them. Photography is more than a window for me; photography is more like a space that tries to capture situations. It's notational. I use the camera like drawing.” — Gabriel Orozco
