I am not able nor interested in setting scenes.
To me, photography is a matter of discovering already existing yet unseen visual meanings.
Research, more than illustration of some a priori concept.
Photography, the capability to notice the existent and its richness.
A matter of information, more than art.
Photography is to challenge the information noise, the nonsense around us.
A matter of chance, with its immense creative power.
To say it in one word, a matter of luck.
Luck, the mysterious quality sensitive individuals have.
I went today to get my midday coffee, with Kal's photo in my mind,
and noticed that set.
It was existing, yet non-existing before I saw it.
Yes, I must admit I am rather lucky, the humble photojournalist that I am ;-)
