quoted in the Los Angeles Times, 13 August 1978
It’s certainly true that I look at the world differently since embracing photography. It’s helped me see the extraordinary in ordinary, everyday things.
It seems that as I look around through my mental viewfinder, there’s always an image just waiting to be captured, that beauty is everywhere – from the life story written on a human face, to a discarded rusty can.
There’s no doubt that photography enriches my life experience.
As Dorothea Lange also said,
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
So what about you – how has photography’s ability to hold life still influenced the way you see the world?
