“LIFE IS A MOVIE, DEATH IS A PHOTOGRAPH” SUSAN SONTAG
For this Issue, I have chosen the theme “B A C K S T A G E “. It wanted deal with the relationship complex, ambiguous and at all obvious between Photography and Cinema , starting from a quote by Susan Sontag. “Life is a movie; death is a photograph.” For the section Great Photographers, we have selected the Great Directors of Photography of the best known directors and of the most famous and beloved film. For sections Guests and Authors were selected photographers who have and express a cinematic approach for content and style, with a prevalence of images of Black and White. Finally in the last section Films we have movies in which main characters are photographers. So were invited authors and authoresses whose research touches on the boundaries of photography. You will never find neither expected and attractive images, nor formal homologated styles among them. Each author has a strong personality, sometimes complex and hermetic. The photographers express themselves, their identity and their inner life, through images that arouse emotions, but also misunderstandings, enigmas and complexity . A formal richness and of a not common content. You will find images inspired to concept ” Life is a movie”, similar freeze-frame, backstage true and metaphoric, superbe Black and white, colors , still, life , blur, mysterious pictures . So thank to these authors who have allowed us to share their photos and their research. In this issue of VISIONS # 3 you will recognize their life and soul, the most hidden feelings, fears, their past and future. These authors came to their most intimated essence, are just themselves and their being is expressed in the images that you will find in VISIONS# 3 and that I wish you love and appreciate as it has been for me . VISIONS # 3 is divided into four sections: THE GREATS among the Directors of Photography in the contemporary history of Cinematography , THE GUESTS who have exhibited at**** contrasted gallery on Flickr and are distinguished by the maturity of their path, THE AUTHORS largely photographers of FLICKR who have established themselves for their stylistic originality, trailers of THE FILMS inspired by theme .
