About the Book
Countless billions of photos are documenting the life, its conditions and its integration into the structures of its physical framework. Each photograph is unique and converts three-dimensional entities into the two-dimensionality at a specific point of time. After closing the camera shutter the object modifies its position on its own timeline and progresses to decay. A photographer wants to capture the moment. Sometimes he succeeds in not only showing what he sees through the cameras viewfinder but also in giving a glimpse of his sight beyond the objects visual manifestation and how he is classifying it in his own personal context. So, in the best case, a photograph is more fundamental than a simple superficial sight and discloses the structures and pattern below the surface.
