"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."

Phil David Morris, 2012 from Saskatoon, New York, Canada

Takes me back to when I saw a person so similar shuffling in pain to cross the intersection with
his shopping cart. The colours are magnificent, at once they are brilliant and subdued !! One of
