Close your eyes and then, open them again.
Looking at photographs, we easily could get the impression that they tell us stories.
Stories about life and death, stories about little moments and big events.
Just by looking at photographs we travel to different continents,
we look in the eyes of strangers, and see catastrophes and poverty.
Photographs fulfill our need to follow up our curiosity,
without being restricted by societies unwritten laws.
We see faces, we see eyes, we see private spaces.
We look and see without the necessity of contact.
We might even experience the illusion of intimacy.
Photographs allow us to see everything we want to see,
without taking any risks.
Many times we use photographs to depict the world as a curiosity cabinet,
populated by humans whom we believe to be different from us and we call them freaks.
Look at the fat one, look at the sick one, look at the poor one,
but we are different, yes we are different.
But we are not.
