Everything We See

"Everything we see 
hides another thing,
we always want to see 
what is hidden by what we see."

"Only thought can resemble.
It resembles by
 being what it sees, 
hears, or knows; 
it becomes what 
the world offers it."

Rene Magritte (1898 - 1967)

Matter into Spirit

"It is not God
who will save us,
it is we who
will save God... battling,
by creating,
and by transmuting
matter into spirit."

- Nikos Kazantzakis (1883 - 1957)

Making the Invisible Visible

"The camera is not only an 
extension of the eye but of the brain.

It can see sharper, farther, 
nearer, slower, faster than the eye.

It can see by invisible light.

It can see in the past, 
present, and future.

Instead of using the camera 
only to reproduce objects, 
 I wanted to use it to make what is 
invisible to the eye — visible. "

Wynn Bullock (1902 - 1975)

"The first peace, which is 
the most important, 
is that which comes within 
the souls of people when
they realize their relationship, 
their oneness,
with the universe and 
all its powers,
and when they realize 
that at the center of the
universe dwells the Great Spirit,
and that this center is 
really everywhere,
it is within each of us."

- Black Elk (1863 - 1950)

Penetrating Matter

“The farther and more deeply
we penetrate into matter,
by means of increasingly
powerful methods,
the more we are confounded by
the interdependence of its parts...
It is impossible to cut into the network,
to isolate a portion without it becoming
frayed and unravelled at all its edges.”

World and Self

"To the vast majority of people 
a photograph is an
image of something within 
their direct experience:
a more-or-less factual reality.

It is difficult for them 
to realize that the
photograph can be the source 
of experience, as well as the
reflection of spiritual awareness 
of the world and of self."

- Ansel Adams (1902 - 1984)

Intellectual Rays

"Many an object is not seen, 
though it falls within our range of visual ray,
because it does not come within the
range of our intellectual ray,
i.e., we are not looking for it.

So, in the largest sense,
we find only the world we look for."

- Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
