    Platon is an orator who takes pictures. His stories always supersede the photograph. His commutation skills are why he has survived in an industry surrounded by better photographers, but who couldn’t compete with his oratorical skills.

    Your recording moments of light....... and your adjusting those moments to suit... With the amount of editing i see your doing from film via scanning hi-res to manipulate those moments of light and you don't acknowledge at any time your team and editors that bring out the best from each image, take away or replace that team and trust me you would fall from grace... And you don't use digital... cant work that one out in my head... using both formats can and should give you more room for movement.... exploring ones limit as a photographer is ones goal...but looking at any of your images i see steady as she goes attitude or a safety net ... sticking to one look and feel has i feel boxed you... open that box and shoot with your eyes closed you will be shocked at what you see on your proof sheets. give your editors a pay rise..

      @Ali Didn't say he did. But somehow it crossed my mind while watching this, so it must have been triggered by something. Maybe it's the people he works for. They can put his art into whatever context they want. Journalism has nothing to do with "capturing someone's soul". In my opinion every photo is a lie. This might be a bit strict. But art is the only source of information that lies to us and still we learn from it. That makes it the most pure and honest teacher I can imagine. Putting it into a context of your choice turns it into propaganda. We got too used to it so I thought this might be worth a comment.

    His sublime sensitivity to his subjects at the most intimate of moments is an inspiration, not just for its art but for its sheer humanity. It reminds me of the work of the late David Bohm, a Nobel prize-winning quantum physicist who is equally as well known for his philosoophy and deep inquiries into the nature of consciousness, explored through a simple term he called "dialogue." When he explained his concept of dialogue, the simplest summation I've heard, is that to enter into a deep dialogue with another human being you have to show "attention and care." The purpose of dialogue was to get past the baggage that we all bring to conversation and relationships, that comes from our personal history. Bohm wanted to connect with the human being, not that baggage. And his notion of "care" was the essence of how he went about it: he connected with his care for another human being. Platon's work embodies Bohm's notion of dialogue exquisitely.
