Angel Fitor - Same old story
There is no better way to kill your own identity as a photographer other than joining the mainstream. As there is no better way to bypass our social responsibility other than working for the complacency of it, by creating images exclusively addressed to our closest, highly speciallized audience. New paths in nature photography seems to dictate that a figurative approach to natural subjects, the so-called artistic photography of the wild, is the trend to follow in our times. Even though I share some of the background ideas behind this particular approach, and that I like to produce it provided that it is tightly linked to an intelligible story addressed to our increasingly denaturallized society, I am still finding in classic behaviour photography the most direct, genuine, arduous, and rewarding form of nature photography.
A couple of mating blennies showing up from its nesting hole is a straightforward image telling an apparently simple story, but in reality, it is hiding a huge amount of base knowledge and dedication, which are in my opinion, the core of past, present, and future of nature photography.
