"Photo-reportage is a means of expressing oneself more through images than words. The images can be sculpted, drawn or photographed, the medium isn't important. Any camera can be used for photo-reportage. This, for example, is an old view plate cam-era. In fact, besides the curtains, it has a magnificent veranda from which you can see the sea. Its wonderful, lazing about in the summer in a bathing suit... the camera isnt always necessary. I've never used this one." Bruno Munari, July 1944
Photo-reportage by Munari was printed in 1944. It was and still is today one of the finest, most amusing and significant lessons on the use of photography for "communication".
