"Something happened when I took your picture. I became enchanted by the sight of you, standing there. looking at the book, perfect in that gentle light. I took the photograph over and over, again and again, compulsively, knowing that when I stopped and set the camera down, the moment would be lost, as the dream dies when one awakens, and I could not bear to let it go."
— Duane Michals
American photographer, born February 18, 1932
