In German and Spanish you make a photograph you do not take it. That is because a photo is not meant to take something out of nature; it is meant to capture a moment, to comment on it, to make it last forever.
When you slice out a moment and freeze it, it is forever immortalized. You prevent the image from evaporating into the past.When you take a photograph, you take the beauty of the moment and transport it into the future with you as token of what once was. A memory to share.
Photography is only witness to the art in which we live.
Oh, right, I should mention that all the photographs on this page were taken by me.
