It seems like a million years ago, but it was just a hundred years ago that photography emerged as an art form in its own. I have chosen pictures from some of the most influential photographers from history. If I may simplify a bit they were: Innovative (Cameron), Inspiring (Stieglitz) and Unpretentious (Atget)

By restarting the journey of 591 Photography I hope that the road will be enlightened by these words. I would like to add another one: Interaction. It is you, dear reader and contributor who are the backbone of all that has been done here 2008-2013. So let's move on and see where this will take us.

"Photography is like chicken soup - it cures all ills" ( Liese said that )
"591 photography is about pictures. Photos that will touch your heart, sharpen your mind and feed your imagination" ( I said that )

Yours
Mr Urbano
