And that’s exactly what it is: the photograph is often called something other than what is visible in the frame. The invisible, our imaginations, our memories, our desires, those of the author and those of the reader, disrupt this “real”, interpret it, filter it to finally see something other than what was photographed.

All that exists right here, and the photos are proof!
Unless this is only imagined things, usually invisible
Unless either as poetry … “
