    "photo should be able to stand alolne without caption or even a title".
    The previous phrase could be the worst interpretation of what Ansel Adams said.
    Hello all,
    My apology in advance if this post does not conform with anybody ideas.
    Unfortunately, lots of what Ansel Adams said/wrote, has been severely misinterpreted, deliberately been tailored(during the last 10 years), to involve(and accommodate) any and every form of practices(creating) of making any and every photo.
    While the man was strict formal genuine artist, needed to confirm that the moon in one of his photographs is not the devil "double exposure", I find unfortunately some people talking about Ansel Adams practices as it was loose(simple, silly, not deep, casual practices, free, unthoughtful, inaccurate, personal rules, not referential), not as a meticulous handcraft with deliberately tight rules as it is truly(as any classical art), as most members here practice today.
    They unfortunately digitalize every thing AA was doing, translating everything to just Photoshop tricks.
    .
    Back to the above phrase,
    Ansel Adams wrote(and said) a lot about his own photography outside the zone of aesthetics. The "Examples, The Making Of 40 Photographs" book, is a clear statement to the history and to the art of photography. IMO(no "H", sorry), the best book ever about artistic(not functional) photography, though does not include much aesthetics and specially never about his work.
    As far as I remember, AA was abstaining from talking about his photographs in the aesthetic aspects, only. He was encouraging others to do so(abstain), and he was considering talking about self work aesthetics, as a weakness.
    Because they are not hiding Photoshop tricks(they do not use it), every photography artist should be free to talk or represent whatever he/she wish, outside the aesthetics. Adams, Weston, White and Karsh are just examples.
    Of course, nobody can prevent anybody from talking about aesthetics of others photos or others oil paintings.
    .
    In this digitalisera, everything can do picturing, everywhere and every time, including Xerox machines. No craftsmanship. Era of undefined meaning of practice, and unknown message of photo!
    Public, most of them, could not differentiate between an inkjet print from downtown lab, and an optical photographic baryta print, leave alone just imagining how each was produced. Also, museum curators are not concerned about discussing the differences between a vivid inkjet print and a long scale optical B&W photographic baryta print, to the public. They are concerned more about money underneath.
    Of course, a group of photographers(LFPF), is not public in any meaning of the word, specially when talking about photography.
    .
    The Story Behind Every Photograph IMHO, is just another "Examples, Of Making Photographs", but in multimedia.
    .
    Thanks so much.

    The generosity of spirit in this forum is great, its warmly appreciated.
