The photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially. –Roland Barthes

The camera is dedicated to the relief of a frustration; an attempt to perform the impossible: the cessation of time’s progression and the caption of a moment. The camera is a remarkably precise and fundamentally inaccurate instrument.

Even if one has a general knowledge of the way people walk, one knows nothing of a person’s posture during the fractional second of a stride. –Walter Benjamin
