Quote of the Day

waterfall2

 

 

As I became aware that all things

have unique spatial and temporal

qualities which visually define and

relate them, I began to perceive the

things I was photographing not as

objects but as events. Working to

develop my skills of perceiving and

symbolizing these event qualities,

I discovered the principle of

 

opposites. When, for example, I photographed the smooth,

luminous body of a woman behind a dirty cobwebbed window,

I found that the qualities of each event were enhanced and the

universal forces which they manifested were more

powerfully evoked.
