Simply Taking Photos

By Serge Tisseron, psychiatrist, psychologist and psychoanalyst.

Only those who choose to become an artist and devote themselves entirely to that task can one day create a great work. On the other hand, everyone is capable of producing a great photograph. It is this observation that prompted the current collection and exhibition of photographs of certain so-called "amateurs". And this is noted in the Manifesto of the Ecole Inférieure de la Photographie.
