We call consciousness, my dear Juliette, this kind of interior voice which rises in us from the violation of a forbidden thing, of whatever nature it may be: a very simple definition, and which shows at first glance eye that this consciousness is the work only of the prejudice received by education, so much so that everything that is forbidden causes him remorse as soon as he breaks it, and that he retains his remorse until what conquered prejudice had shown him that there was no real evil in the forbidden thing. Marquis de Sade.
As the name suggests, photography consists above all in using light to record something. This supposes on the one hand that there is light to be recorded, and on the other hand that this light forms figures and an interesting image by its contrasts : contrasts of intensities between black and white, contrasts of colors, contrasts of textures, which by their arrangement reproduce the photographed subject. The art of the photographer consists above all in playing with this light, which sometimes involves organizing the lighting to better capture his subject. It is not enough that there is light to be able to take a good photograph, it must also be adapted to the subject that the photographer wants to capture.
I swear, my lover, to be yours alone.
