I was web wandering through ms baker's reflections this afternoon, in a moment of peace before rushing out for the rest of the day, and while wandering I discovered Edouard Boubat, a French photographer who started work after World War 2 saying, 'After the war, we felt the need to celebrate life, and for me photography was the means to achieve this...'
There's a rather good interview with him here.
He said, "I think that the photos that we like were made when the photographer knew how to disappear. If there were a secret, certainly that would be it."
