COOLA: BRESSAÏ

Älskar detta citat om fotografi och dess förmåga till ”immidiacy”, alltså något direkt. Skrivet av fotografen Bressaï (1899-1984), hittat i hans bok om hans goda vän Henry Miller.

”[...] the deep hunger of our own times to capture life at its source, in its immediacy, and without the intermediary of the artist, whether that artist is brilliant or boring. Photography, film, radio, television, are they not specifically intended to do just that? What is current chips away at those venerable, thousand-year-old cliffs of art. Even the most mediocre photographs contain something unique and irreplacable, something that no artist, living or dead – can attain or equal or replace.”

- Henry Miller, the Paris Years av Bressaï (1975)
