FRANK HORVAT
[b. 1928] French photographer
Photography is the art of not pushing the button. - Frank Horvat - http://www.horvatland.com/

I looked at your photos Petar. I like the fact that you are photographing very different subjects, with different techniques. This is the advantage of living in a place with not too much competition: in a capital like Paris, London or New York, young photographers are encouraged to stick to what they believe to be a style, but what is often not much more than a few tricks.
While by trying many different ways, you may slowly reach the point where you say more about yourself than about the objects or the landscapes or the people you photograph – and this is where photography really interests me.

...photography is made essentially of time. I often think that what we show is a point in time, more than a window onto space. - Frank Horvat

By trying many different approaches, you may slowly reach the point where you say more about yourself than about the objects or the landscapes or the people you photograph—and this is where photography really interests me. - Frank Horvat

There’s this idea that photography is a kind of testimony and therefore we’re forbidden to tell lies with it. I think that’s nonsense. Photography isn’t testimony. - Frank Horvat

To me, photography is not just a visual art, but something closer to poetry—or at least to some poetry, such as the haiku. - Frank Horvat
