Donde viven los monstruos

Every now and then we’re reminded that photography is about light. Where it lands, where it fades, where it shimmers, where it dissipates and separates, where it bends, where it reflects and refracts, where it disappears into shadow.

Robert Frank argued that for photographers, life and light “cannot be a matter of indifference and it is important to see what is invisible to others.” But we have to define ‘what is invisible to others’ to mean what others look at but don’t see.

Do monsters live under the bed? It doesn’t matter. It only matters that photographers will get under the bed to see.
