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

Lasting for almost 3 hours and the Casa da Cultura Paraty crowded, and Maurice Eder Chiodetto 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, began the table with a text of Mauritius. "Every photograph is pregnant with dreams. Every photographer dreams awake. "

Ruffled? Well get ready, the conversation gets even better.

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

The intention in assembling and curating 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 Documentary Imaginary. Eder pointed work Gisella Motta and Leandro Lima, the Red Gallery as one of the incentives for mounting the exhibition. With portraits of two people, the artists created a virtual child, fusing the two images. "The photograph that was created to record the existing, now serves to create characters. A job to think the photograph of the future, "Eder said.

The use of the Internet, digital distribution of images, the popularization of digital cameras and programs like Photoshop, changed the audience the photograph. In the case of photojournalism, the reader became suspicious of the possibility of always being manipulated image.

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

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

Mauricio began his speech Lissovsky retaking the concepts of his 10 propositions presented in 2010 In the past, the wait was the essence of photography. The photographic device, then, is both a machine and a machine to wait to file. And the issue of the file is the issue of the future. You need to file, because if we want to know what something means, we will only know tomorrow.

Waiting is storing dreams.

In an exercise of thinking about the future image, 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 are gone. The other argues that the images are the work of an artist, and are nomads who camp in different media.

But is the poem of Baudelaire, The One Passante, Mauricio beautifully concludes this exercise over the image. "Every photo is the future tense."
