I often feel not only useless but also exhausted to advise photographers who have been my students and help them in a series of artistic choices which the next day they betray with the greatest ease to participate in a group or an exhibition with a completely different artistic I believe only to serve a personal ambition. I also emphatically emphasize that the fact that their photos may be good is of no concern at all. Each photograph due to the essential and at the same time charming weakness of the medium always like a chameleon takes on the characteristics of the environment in which it is exhibited.

After all the Circle and I do not have much communication or financial power and we cannot secure anything for the members not even promise. The above is written to point out the frequent and varied similar phenomena that come under my notice. They were also written to emphasize that being a member of The Circle carries a weight. Not only the spiritual and moral consistency but also my own whining.Albert Camus said that the moment a wronged person takes up a gun he already has one foot in the territory of injustice.
