Wendell Berry: "The camera is a point of reference . . . It is the discipline and the opportunity of vision. In relation to the enclosure we call civilization, these pictures" (i.e., photographs) "are not ornaments or relics, but windows and doors, enlargements of our living space, entrances into the mysterious world outside our walls, lessons in what to look for and how to see. They limit our comfort; they drain away the subtle corruption of being smug; they make us a little afraid, for they suggest always the presence of the unknown, what lies outside the picture and beyond our eyesight; they suggest the possibility of the sudden accesses of delight, vision, beauty, joy that entice us to keep alive and reward us for living . . ."
