“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” – Dorothea Lange
Photographs are magic, they are like the simplest form of time travel! When you look at a picture that has been clicked several years ago, you are sneaking into the past with great accuracy. You can literally feel the energy of people or places while looking at their photographs. Isn’t that simply amazing? But like there are good magicians and then there are ‘unbelievably awesome’ magicians, similarly, there are good photographers and then there are a few “Are you kidding me? How can someone be that good?” photographers.
