Photographies

"We often see in photographic magazines, photographers using things, models and human beings in the realisation of their work. This type of picture is in fact unilateral and the photographer through his photography obtains a egocentric feeling (jouissance égocentrique). The contact which must be established between the photographer and those photographed is the main thing. It should not only be a concerned use. All the dimensions of a communication between those two persons must be felt in the photography. He must not be satisfied only with a photo taken as an observer, but penetrating inside the people as to really grasp their reality. Once this reality is understood, our work must lead into a social implication. Through a greater knowledge of the context, we reach a point where our photo becomes a visual mean of thought on our society. The photographic magazines must not be our sole means of distribution, but we must also and mostly broadcast in the homes, the districts and the street of the concerned people. It is necessary that we give them back their images."
