When you visit a museum ... you go with a magnifying glass?
Normally you will have noticed that it takes a certain distance from the work to properly view it in its entirety.
Do you think that photography has a place in the "art"?
If photography considered "art" Why look very closely?
Why increase the image of an author at 300% and 400% in size in the screen of your computer?
The work must always be seen in its entirety, at the right distance.
Probably the magnifying glass is useful to find out the ingredients of the materials with which the work is performed. It is also useful to find out if there over time and causes deterioration.
The materials that the author chose for his work are materials, colors and shapes to express voluntary and conscious. But the author chooses the materials and the tools to translate their work, not for his work to be dismembered, inspected, and tested.
When you hang a picture in your living room ... Would you put a magnifying glass in front?
I try to always consider any work as a whole, (painting, photography, sculpture ...)
If I like: I dedicate more time to observe.
If I do not like: Do not spend time
What do you think about this?
Thanks you for your feedback
