El f/64

La contraparte del grupo secesionista del cual he hablado anteriormente que trabajó fuertemente para elevar el valor de la fotografía a arte, es el grupo f/64. Me resulta intereante la siguiente selección de texto que deaja ver sus ideales:


“Group f/64 limits its members and invitational names to those workers who are striving to define photography as an art form by simple and direct presentation through purely photographic methods. The Group will show no work at any time that does not conform to its standards of pure photography. Pure photography is defined as possessing no qualities of technique, composition or idea, derivative of any other art form. The production of the “Pictorialist,” on the other hand, indicates a devotion to principles of art which are directly related to painting and the graphic arts.
The members of Group f/64 believe that photography, as an art form, must develop along lines defined by the actualities and limitations of the photographic medium, and must always remain independent of ideological conventions of art and aesthetics that are reminiscent of a period and culture antedating the growth of the medium itself.”

La fotografía creada por este grupo aboradaba detalles y formas recurrentes de la naturaleza en torno a una mirada contmplativa.
El caso de Weston es uno de los más relevantes sobre este grupo, su fotografía aborda temas recurrentes que van del paisaje, a las formas geométricas encontradas, a la figura femenina.
