Magnum Irrelevant

What is originality?

Is it when you are the first at something or when from a lot of like you, only you have the ingenuity to make something different?

Magnum guys were the first in Photojournalism/Documentary Photography/Reportage/War Photography/Street Photography. I don’t think it was very hard…because there was none to compare them with, they were and still are the Gods.

Today, you must struggle, fight, learn, work, sweat to be original because there are so may of us, photographers…

Shephers by Jost Franko

After seeing this story, one (photographer) would definetly think about his photography…I did.

What is it that makes a photograph work? Or, what is MY photography and do I understand it? or…am I a photographer at all?

Jost Franko knows it. He enjoys it, he loves it…this is what I noticed from his story. He did’nt even bother about exposure sometimes (I guess). His hands were capturing his heart beats. He was living his story…right there…in the mountains.

At the end nothing matters. Big photographers are big as a result of infinite of circumstances. Their photos remain in museums and art galleries, but they are just a materialistic interpretation of the world we know and feel. We all know that there is beauty and there’s blood. When we look at images we realise that either there is more beauty or either there’s more blood.

But what is continous is their love for the medium. They loved photography…and this is why they made great work…
