David duChemin:: "It is [.[ life that counts , , , photographs just amplify it, celebrate it, bring clarity, and engage with it . . . the camera helps slow it down a little by grabbing those little moments that we'd otherwise forget and make them a little less slippery—a little easier to hold for a while longer."
I'm reading Elaine Scarry's book On Beauty and Being Just; in it she writes about beauty suddenly appearing before us and how that changes our outlook on the world in general. She argues that recognizing moments of beauty can change our reaction to injustice, because beauty by appearing to us forces us to pay more attention to everything around us. In doing so, of course, we come to see more clearly the good and the bad, the false and the true—something everyone needs a better grasp on these days.
