Heraclitus believed the world’s secret law to consist in the tight connection between opposites, which fight one another but, at the same time, can’t exist without the other, since one lives only because of the other one.
The term opposition (from the Latin term oppositio and the verb opponere, to oppose) philosophically refers to that condition, where something, due to its characteristics, stands, materially and/or ideally, in strong contrast with another one. Therefore, nothing would exist if its opposite wouldn’t also exist at the same time.
A photographic image is said to be contrasted when there is a clear difference between the light and dark parts, i.e. when its content is concentrated in the lights (clear zones) and in the shadows, having a scarce presence of intermediate tones. Hence contrast means difference, conflict, disagreement, opposition…of sounds, smells, ideas, colours, lights, tones, ages, genders, verbal, physical… (Gabriele Agostini)
