“While you are creating, the photographer’s mind is blank, I should add that this condition occurs only in special cases, mainly when looking for images. While the photographer is in this condition, there is something that prevents him from being misled, which prevents him from falling down the sewers or embed themselves against the bumpers of stopped trucks. For those who compare this blankness with some kind of static vacuum, I must explain that it is a special blankness. In fact it is a very active mental state, a very receptive mental state , ready at any moment to capture an image without having, however, any preformed image.We should emphasize that the lack of a preformed pattern or a preconceived idea about how it should represent anything is essential for this condition of being blank. This state resembles that of a virgin film: it seems inert, but it is so sensitive that a fraction of a second generates life in it (not only life, but a life). ”
