Photography in its simplest terms

In different formats and with very different purposes photography occupies great part of my time. What I consider my work as author, that great and dissimilar set in which photography is mixed with work, family photos, anecdotal records and many etceteras, has always been a reflection on photography in itself. This set of thoughts is a brief and very simple reflections that help me think about the rest of my interactions with photography.
