50 mm - Jean-Manuel Simoes

2009 summer vacation in Libon, Portugal. I decided, out of sheertechnical challenge to mount a 50mm on an Leica M body and leave it there for the holidays. I”m usually user to 35mm focal length that I”m used to, which is my natural place in the composition. A habit that allows me to be quite ready to receive the magnetism of a situation, person and far enough to integrate within the context.I first saw this as a big confusion, 50mm makes me miss the pictures. Obviously, I was too far away, not where I should. And above all I keep looking 35. But slowly I begin to place 50. Further, elsewhere, online casinos so think differently, see differently, see something else. Fairly quickly I took this challenge as an exercise, an opening. The 50 also, and above all change the subject of scrutiny.

This simple change of focus will be several consequences for my future work, including my composition 35. But at the same time it is the result of a change in my vision, in what I decide to place in the frame.

This serie was exhibited at the gallery Photo 4 in Paris in spring 2010.
