I can’t really explain what I consider as “harmony” with words. Maybe this is why as a photographer I use images, just like a musician would use sounds.
Harmony in photography is for me to capture a dynamic movement on a single frame, and to let people perceive it when looking at the image. I understand harmony as life, and life is always in movement.
Life is movement, but is not always reduced only to a physical movement. Evolution or the expansion of consciousness is also a movement, and it keeps us alive. It is a movement towards a better and deeper understanding of our own nature and identity. Being in movement, having a purpose is feeling alive.
This movement takes place in space, but mostly in time. Without time, without ageing, there is no possible movement.
We need to accept the passing of time if we want to stay alive. We need to accept our age and our maturity. Our materialist culture is afraid of Death, and many people are obsessed with efforts “stay young”. But being young is being alive, and thus not being afraid of the movement of life, which leads us all to death.
What this means is that death is part of life, not apart of it. All that begins must end says the character of Morpheus in the “Matrix”. Being alive is accepting Death, not as the negation of life but as it’s natural conclusion.
He who fears Death will never be really alive.
He who enjoy Life will understand Death as part of the general Harmony.
The non-circular and unceasing movement of these Tango Dancers is like an Ode to Life.Back to Gallery
