Photography is our best tool for documentation. Images have the power to influence us today and inform us tomorrow.
A photograph is literally a record of time and light. Besides visual data, there is implied information: who we are, where we are from, and what we think. All of this is encrypted in our visual language.
It is important for us, as visual communicators, to spend as much time as we can exploring, discovering, and documenting. The photographs that we make today will live forever. We are historians.
