  1. …“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art”…

    To be honest, i think this is bollocks 🙂

    Anyone noticed that Mr. Cézanne is the one who starts by calling it art in the first place? *He’s* the one calling it art. 🙂

    Also, when i shoot (or anyone else for that matter) it’s because i think it’s funny, or beautiful, or creepy, or whatever, otherwise i wouldn’t shoot it, right? But that’s not special, that’s just human… we humans feel all the time.. 24hrs a day, even when we’re sleeping we’re feeling emotions. So, the question is: *how* could we shoot (or create) anything without feeling? It’s just impossible for a human being to do that.

    Sorry for the rambling… 🙂
