“The basic material of photographs is not intrinsically beautiful. It’s not like ivory or tapestry or bronze or oil on canvas. You’re not supposed to look at the thing, you’re supposed to look through it. It’s a window. And everything behind it has got to be organized as a space full of stuff, even if it’s only air.”John Szarkowski http://www.laweekly.com/2006-12-07/art-books/talking-pictures/2/ (via jsopek)
“The doubts of day-time and the doubts of night-time - the curious whether and how, whether that which appears so is so, or is it all flashes and specks?
Walt Whitman (There Was a Child Went Forth)
Men and women crowding fast in the streets - if they are not flashes and specks, what are they?”
