WELCOME Madison Dinelle @madisondinelle on our fourth day of the 🔥TAKEOVER WEEK🔥-"My photos try to empty the concept out of everything in order to document beautiful visual occurrences. They try to elevate the latter by prioritizing form, color and texture over subject-matter. Everything in every moment is magic if we just pay attention to it."-Madison Dinelle.
#Throwback : in October 2013, I spent some of my lifelong savings on a trip to India to attend a Magnum Photos Workshop. We were mentored for an entire week by the Great Abbas. I had then just learnt the very basics of photography, I did not shoot RAW, I still processed my pictures on IPhoto (I know...) and had never heard about editing. Needless to say that I was the least experienced photographer. But I went, watched and listened. That week, I learnt the principles of visual storytelling and heard some of the most memorable advices from this man that I consider my first strong influence in photojournalism, including that when it comes to photography, our mission was to be better than baboons. “Anybody can take pictures; photography's a very easy thing. You can give a camera to a baboon [and it will learn to take photographs]. The problem isn't taking photographs, or taking good photographs, the problem is having a language; a vision as a photographer.”
RIP Abbas #throwbackthursday#india#india_clicks#documentaryphotography#newdelhi#newdelhiindia#streetphotography#street_vision#streetlife#travel#travelphotography
