Photography Does Not Come From Photography

Of this I am absolutely sure: Photography does not come from photography.

Photography comes from paintings, from books, from psychology, from philosophy. From films. From areas all over.

Photography may take you some of the way but unless you have something else in addition, you will not go far.

Yes, of this I am absolutely sure.

    lets say from dreams , stories , life , science , manufacture ( techne ) , but not from film because film is just a product of photography .
