"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

An image dripping with dreamy mystery - for all loss creates the path of unseen possibilities. I love this, Mariana.
