As a follow-up to our desire to exchange with the galleries of our international photo art fair, we wanted to initiate a collection of testimonials and impressions from the photographers represented on PhotoMonaco, asking them to respond to the question: « Why do you photograph? » In order to be published on our blog, these diverse and varied answers will be the beginning of a small contemporary anthology of the practice among all these artists of the light. At our invitation, here are the personal reflections of all the photographers involved who have agreed to play this roundup in the form of a question mark, with a small, medium or long text from their signature!

« I do not know why I’m photographing, but it’s an inner necessity, so I keep photographing until I find it! I photograph to see beyond the visible. »
