We are one human race, and there must be an understanding among all men. For those who look at the problems of today, my big hope is that they understand. That they understand that the population is quite big enough, that they must be informed that they must have economic development, that they must have social development, and must be integrated into all parts of the world.
Sebastiao Salgado – Excerpts from an interview with Sebastiao Salgado by Ken Lassiter, Photographer’s Forum
Photographs may be more memorable than moving images because they are a neat slice of time, not a flow. Each still photograph is a privileged moment turned into a slim object that one can keep and look at again.
