Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
Art is essentially the affirmation, the blessing, and the deification of existence. It is through Art and through Art only that we can realize our imperfection; through Art alone can we shield ourselves from the sordid perils of actual existence.
