Some peaceful times amongst a cacophony of voices.
Any Susan Sontag quote from my cherished copy of On Photography could fit here, but this one has always stuck with me (p. 119):
Photography is seen as an acute manifestation of the individualised “I”, the homeless private self astray in an overwhelming world – mastering reality by a fast visual anthologising of it. Or photography is seen as a means of finding a place in the world (still experienced as overwhelming, alien) by being able to relate to it with detachment – bypassing the interfering, insolent claims of the self.
With those words in mind, I’ll let the following images speak for themselves and allow you to relish in these quiet moments just as I did at the time.
Sontag, S 1977, On photography, Penguin Books, London.
