I invite you, you clicked on the link, take a deep breath and travel to the future (of the past). Lots of interesting thing was said during this table and the task of summarizing it gets to be a little sore. Who was there can witness a very rich and full of ideas conversation.

Lasting almost three hours and the House of crowded Paraty Culture, Eder Chiodetto and Mauritius Lissovsky opened the round of talks on Saturday.

Both have worked the Future theme in his research and brought an overview of what has been, is being and imagine that will be the way of photography. Livia Aquino, mediator, started the table with a Mauritius text. "Every photograph is pregnant with dreams. Every photographer dreams awake. "

Ruffled? For prepare the conversation is even better.

Eder Chiodetto brought to Paraty a part of the gigantic exhibition Generation 00. Already Mauritius Lissovsky the order, brought a continuation of the discussion that began in 2010, during the 2nd Forum of Latin American Photography .

The intention in the assembly and curator of the exhibition Generation 00 was to map the lines of force that emerged in the decade and was divided into two modules: Limits, metalanguages ​​and Document Imaginary. Eder pointed out the work of Gisella Motta and Leandro Lima, the Red Gallery, one of the incentives for the display assembly. With pictures of two people, the artists created a virtual child, merging the two images. "The picture that was created to record the existing, now serves to create characters. A job to think the photograph of the future, "said Eder.

The use of the Internet, digital distribution of the images, the popularization of digital camera and programs such as Photoshop, changed the public photography. In the case of photojournalism, the reader became suspicious of the possibility of the image always be manipulated.

But the 21st century photographers have also changed. Most of the papers presented in the Generation 00 were produced for Graduation works. It is a generation that is going to study photography, in practice and in theory.

Guilherme Maranhão, Sofia Borges, Rafael Assef, Rodrigo Braga, Raquel Brust (which is also in Paraty with its Gigantografias) were also present at the exhibition.

Mauricio Lissovsky began his talks resuming the concepts of its 10 proposals presented in 2010. In the past, the wait was the essence of photography. The photographic device then is both a machine and a machine expected archiving. And the question of the file is the issue of the future. We need to save because if we want to know what something means, we will only know tomorrow.

Waiting is storing dreams.

In an exercise of tomorrow's picture, Mauricio spent by Jacques Rancière and his work The fate of Image and his debate with WJT Mitchell. One says that nothing is real and that the images over. The other argues that the images are the work of an artist, and are nomads camping in different media.

But it is the poem of Baudelaire, The A Passante, Mauricio concludes beautifully this exercise over the image. "Every picture of the future is the past."
