It Must Be Love

I am truly in love.  I am so overwhelmingly inspired by the works of both Henri Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evans that I find it hard to breathe.  The truth, humility and candidness of their photographs is, to me, what photography is all about - and the beauty and composition are just an incredible bonus to the subject matter.  Words can't describe what I find in them.  These photographers make me want to create, they make me want to participate in the world as I never have before.  I once read that Cartier-Bresson captured the essence of an event, of life, by pointing his camera away from the fanfare and into the crowd.  And that's where we are, after all.
