All of us, either amateurs and art lovers or high level artists, use photography to document life and more specifically our lives.
At 20’s and 30’s there was a discussion about the inspiration that photography gives just by pressing the shutter. Multiple prints can be in different places at the same time.
In 1927 Salvador Dali, that excessive artist, wrote in the " L'Amic de les Arts " (N° 18, Sitges, 30 Septembre 1927) his thoughts about photography: “ Fotografia, pura creació de l’ esperit – Photography, pure creation of the spirit (mind) ” and the clear eye that is needed either to photograph or to investigate the view. There are several artists, photographers, photographs with different themes, angles of vision and spiritual approach. The way of presentation can be different either in photography or painting and not all the works are for standing at the wall of a living room.
Ten years later, in 1937, Pablo Picasso makes in grey, black, white “ La Guernica “ a symbolic painting in which he, by himself, explained the meanings that he wanted to present.
