The writer Eduardo Galeano stated that human beings are not made up of atoms but of stories. And if storytelling is the basis of our memory and all our desires, it is also, by extension, the basis of photographic language. Photography is therefore not a universal language: photographers each use a tool – the camera – to shape their own voice, their own search, their own dialogue with the observer. And at the centre of this dialogue there is always an underlying story, which can be related to the historical context, to the technique or to the people in the photograph, but always to the photographer’s gaze.
