Practice Photography Without A Camera


By Stephan Pisko

When we begin with photography – that very first moment – before the mechanics are between us and the picture we see ‘a truth within the moment’ and it is this that is: ‘photography without a camera’.

The ‘camera cripples’ our artistic truths it reshapes our perception it deludes but the camera can be a marvelous tool if we learn the art of photography without a camera’. Observing the scene before our eyes as if we had the camera in our hands going beyond the camera with the camera in our hands takes artistic discipline to master capturing only what our eyes see even though the lense records something that the eyes cannot perceive.

Discipline focusing development on the ‘single space’ the photographer must be ever cognizant of the ‘entire space’ then choose the ‘artistic truth of the moment by selecting a single space’.
