What makes an unmade photo?

We know that sometimes, photographers take decisions in split seconds. Each situation we photograph is different and the reasons why we cannot or will not take a photo change from person to person.

  • You didn’t get acces to your subject.
  • The moment was so intense that you preferred to live it.
  • Ethics prevented you from taking a photo.
  • You had technical problems, you ran out of batteries or memory cards while faced with an extraordinary situation.
  • You didn’t have the camera with you or it broke down.

We know that there are many more stories out there. The description of such a unique situation in which you didn’t take a photograph can be an unmade photo.
