Minor White believed that photography has the potential to spiritually transform the viewer as well as the practitioner. I can attest to that because it happened to me a long, long time ago.

When Charlotte Brontë was thirteen and her brother, Branwell, was twelve, they designed and wrote a series of tiny books: “Measuring less than one inch by two inches, the books were made from scraps of paper and constructed by hand. Despite their diminutive size, the books contained big adventures, written in ink in careful script.”

Words
I don’t know where they come from.I can summon them(sometimes I can)into my mind,into my fingers,I don’t know why. Or I’ll suddenly hear themwalking, sometimeswaking—they don’t often come when I need them.When I need them most terribly,never.
—Franz Wright. Art:  Leonid Pasternak.
