And so it could also be for your photographs because being in front of a photographer’s lens is very different from taking a selfie with friends.
You are the absolute protagonist of the shot. You could have in front of you a guy that you have seen yes and no once to agree on the estimate and who now falls into your room while you are getting dressed, flashes and various lights, and begins to give you a series of commands to perform carefully and precision because it is already getting late and the start of the ceremony is approaching: look here, look there, smile, approach the window, look at mom, look at dad, look at me.
And while you would like to have a moment to think, rearrange ideas and say to yourself “but I’m really getting married, what a joy”, the perfect stranger, as if nothing had happened, will continue to draw your attention to reality and the series of look there – look here – look at me – look up – look down which, at some point, will transform you into an automaton and make you lose sight of the essential things.
The photos may be technically perfect, but you won’t be in those photos. Those photos will not talk about you and above all they will not tell your emotions.
