3// I have found the definition of beauty

– my concept of beauty. Something at the same time full of sadness and full of restrained glow, something floatingly inaccurate, which leaves room for conjecture. (Charles Baudelaire)

4// It is possible that we often look at something similar

without seeing it. We do not see what we perceive. We do not see what we are looking at. We do not see the extraordinary perspectives and the shortening of objects. We, who have been taught to see the ordinary and the acquired, we have to rediscover the world of the visible. (Alexander Rodtschenko)

5// The forgotten civilization

The nature of the wind has slowly but deeply caressed the genuine concrete. Memories of the past, and the indifference of the present, have left the Soviet Modernist constructions lost in time and behind the dust of a new generation that doesn’t want to look back. In the complex discourse of our cities, these objects remain like disconnected phrases, forgotten words, of a civilization that seems not to exist anymore. (Mane Tatoulian)

6// Pictures are important areas

They point to something in space-time „out there“, which they are supposed to make us imagine as abstractions. The photographer creates, processes and stores symbols. The structure of the photographic gesture is quantitative: a doubt built up from point-like hesitation and point-like decision making. (Vilém Flusser)
