"All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt."

"It is a cruel, ironical art..the dragging of captured moments into the future; moments that should have been allowed to evaporate into the past should exist only in memories, glimpsed through the fog of events that came after.."
