Ética y fotografía


Marius-Catalin Barbulescu tomó esta fotografía (Nothing To Say) en los Jardines Cişmigiu, en Bucarest, el invierno pasado. Transcribo sus comentarios sin enmendar siquiera los gazapos ortográficos.

"After I gave him two ciggarets, he showed me his home, he told me his life, he asked for some clothes. I took some pictures while he told me how glad he was that it was no longer cold. A month ago, in Bucharest, there was a frost we'll remeber for a long time. Well, I belive this is the last one I take on this subject. I conclude that it is not ethical to shoot homeless people just for streetshooting, just for one picture to show something we already know. Though I've approched this man as faire as I could to give me this, I belive a project on this subject with a clear purpose would be much more apropriate, something to help a little" (cfr. photo.net).

alguna vez hice lo mismo. Quize retratar las caras de distintos pordioseros en la ciudad de Puebla. Fotos sumamente expresivas. La pregunta: fue correcto haber retratado la miseria y el dolor de un par de personas?. La respuesta sería afirmativa sin por lo menos cada vez que veo esas fotos colgadas en mi recámara, sea capaz de formar un propósito, si, una oración.
