A photographer must possess and preserve the faculties of a child who looks on the world for the first time.
As a rule, we all are too busy, too pre-occupied, too eager to be right, too obsessed by certain ideas to find the time to just stand and stare.
We look at something and think we have seen it.
And yet whatever we see is often what our preconceived ideas prepare us to see. Only rarely are we able to free ourselves from the burden of thoughts and emotions and see for the simple pleasure of seeing. And as long as we cannot do this, the essence of things are hidden.”
~ Bill Brandt
