Quote of the Day

waterfall2

 

 

As long as there’s journalism, there

will be photojournalism. They’re

two halves of a whole. And

although they certainly won’t last

forever, for the moment I don’t see

either one of them coming to an

end. Roland Barthes, in his book

Camera Lucida, stated that

photography, rather than film or

 

television, is the collective memory of the world. As I see it,

he’s right about this. Photography immortalizes a moment,

which then becomes a symbol, a reference. Photography is 

universal language; it doesn’t need translation. Its collective

memory is a mirror in which our society continually

observes itself… 

 

 

Sebastiao Salgado

 (1944-    )

Brasilian Photographer & Photojournalist
