Rarely does one stop to deeply analyze the different levels of which a photograph is composed. According to Ugo Mulas, when we take a photograph, we produce a "counter-release": a mechanism similar to the recoil of a rifle after a shot, where the photographer himself is in the center of the shot, hidden in the object or landscape depicted. Mixed with the objectivity of the registration of the luminous imprint of things, there is, in photography, the subjectivity of the point of view of those who carry out this registration.
We could then say that photography is the recording of the meeting point between us and the world, and that this recording introduces - with its invention - the possibility of taking distance, decontextualizing and comparing this meeting point.
