I recently discovered Wordless Wednesday. On Wednesdays, bloggers around the world post an untitled photo on their blog. No captions. No words. Because, you know, a photo is worth a thousand.
“To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.” —Susan Sontag
And just a few more (and then I promise I’ll shut up. What part of wordless don’t you understand???)
“Narratives can make us understand. Photographs do something else. They haunt us.” —Susan Sontag
You can read an excerpt from the book here.
Here’s my first contribution. I hope you enjoy.
