Poetry 4

Photography © Susanne Stoop, Leiden, The Netherlands.

tekens van tijd
goddeloos

des aanstoots
in het doolhof

van onze hoofden verminkt
bloedend uit haar schoot

zij staart
de oude moeder

zij legt haar hoofd
op de versteende aarde en

sluit

haar
ogen

Hard-Core Scenes 1

Brussel, Belgium 2007.

New Label ' Hard-Core Photography ? '

Hard-Core is mostly related to pornography. Not to photography! Porn means explicit and voyeurism and taboo at the same time. The label may probably show explicit photographs but not in a sexual way. And if they have a sexual content, they will not be explicit. The photos will show other sides of reality, underground scenes, darkness, loneliness, desolation, poverty, etc. They will sometimes violating taboo in society.
The new label also refers to different deviant photografic appraoches or at least questioning photographic standard rules about subject matter, subject categories, viewpoint, framing, composition, distance, light, sharpness, etc. Up to subject matter it could be defined as unusual, out of sight, tough, extreme, indecent, decadent, etc.
Hard-Core photography could show images taken in a very straight way, not necessarily streetphotography but always uncensored and certainly not staged. Let 's say it is about real people and urban scenes, photographed with balls.

Quote 13

Brussel, Belgium 2007.

' I don’t believe in photography as art or a job or anything. I think of photography as a language and I think a language should be used to speak, to say what you have to say. So the only things I have to say about my life and what I know about the world, is the way I see it. So, it’s not about photography … I think people should just use photography to say things and not just photography for the sake of photography … the world is full of talented photographers. The problem is just so many of them just don’t know what to say, they think life is one thing and photography is another but they don’t realise that photography is just a way to reflect what you are. '
