How to Become a Photographer | Leicaphilia →

deadmetaphors:

Sergio Larrain died today at the age of 81. He was one of the 20th Century’s greatest photographers.

Above is a link to a letter he wrote to his nephew about “How to be a Photographer.” Like much of what he created, it’s thoughtful and beautiful.

"Get away from the things you know, get closer to those you don’t know, go from one place to the other, places you like. Then, you’ll start finding things, images will be forming into your head, consider them as apparitions."

THAT is exactly what photography is to me  and how I see it!

Have a look..

RIP Sergio Larrain
