I have been nominated by fellow photography blogger Angela Furtado (Shoot’nGo, Adventures in Photography) to take part in a challenge to post my three favouritAventures e quotes (one each for three consecutive days). Thanks for the nomination, Angela!
I am not one for quotes, as a rule, but got looking at a few from famous photographers, and thought “why not?” with one caveat. I am meant to nominate 3 bloggers each day to take up the challenge, but like some others, I have decided to throw this open to anyone who wants to have a go… Cheating? Maybe..
So here is my quote for day 2:
“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”
― Susan Sontag
