Photographer's Note

Continuation on my theme about the TE members I admire. To know what this is all about please read the introductory notes on the first post of the series.

Sarolta’s photography is all about sensibility. The deep emotional response that is always contained in her pictures is so intense that usually I have to spend more that the regular dozen of minutes to read every bit of her posts. Sometimes, I get so immersed in her photos that I find myself looking at them for an entire half of an hour before even trying to make a single comment. And when this happens, the resulting critique I can produce is no more that a derailed train of words that tend to fail to describe the mix of emotions these studies normally leave me in.

Her photography is also a constant source of amazement. What she can do with that Nikon and a single kit lens is a lesson for those of we who keep filling our bags with toys at the excuse of "this is what I lack to take better pictures". Her photography is the ultimate proof that it is the photographer that makes the picture and not the kit that records the world. And that’s just a sign why she is so unique… The designer way of composing, the incredible cultural references, the sensitive approach to people and its surrounding world and the imaginative way how she captures daily life are some of the reasons why I consider Sasa one of the best photographers know to me.

This photo I am offering her is by no means an attempt to mimic her outstanding work. The reason is simple: individual sensibility is just impossible to impersonate. This is just my personal tribute to her walks through Otawa’s parks; places that produce photos I always remember with care.

So thanks my dear for being that persistent spring of light and amazement. Your perceptive read of this world has thought me a lot in these last months and I bet it will keep on making me smile and wonder. Your positive way of thinking and the belief you convey though your words are the proof that miracles do happen everyday. I will wait then for the blissful blow that comes from the other side of the Atlantic, even if it usually comes when Lisbon is preparing to sleep. Happy dreaming! :)
