"Photography is not only a chance to capture a memory and hold on to it when everything else in the world is changing. It is also a unique and wonderful merging of sight, imagination, reality and passion. I think that it is through photography that some of us feel better able to communicate to others what we find compelling in the world around us.

As Lewis Hine once said, ' If I could say it in words, I wouldn't need to photograph.' "
