Perché fotografiamo 04.02.11

Che sia per ricordo o per hobby la passione per la fotografia ci avvicina al mondo e al nostro prossimo.

For some it's as necessary as breathing. It's as much a part of who we are as the clothes we wear, the music we listen to, the friends we associate with and the values we hold dear. It's who we are. To others it's an enjoyable hobby or past-time – a great way to spend some free time or a way to capture little family moments. Whatever your personal level of involvement in photography is, taking photos is something we all love to do.

Perhaps there is a deeper psychological explanation. Our time on this earth only lasts for so long, and a camera allows us to preserve memories far past when they might have slipped our mind. It helps us pass those memories into the hands of future generations. Our photos are little legacies of the life we have led – our travels, experiences, food, family, friends, work relationships and more. Each photo is a window into a moment, and the collections of images we take over the years are a window into who we were and what we valued. Ultimately it comes down to a simple truth – seeing that moment captured makes us genuinely happy.
