“It’s all about stopping time, possessing things, holding onto them. I think photography is the most anti-Zen activity. And you know, if my goal was to be a healthy person, photography would not be the thing. I have this joke about becoming a binoculographer: you go around and look at the world without photographing. That would be a spiritually healthy way of taking things in. But this wanting to possess is not so healthy.” ALEC SOTH. #alec #soth #photography

I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.
I believe in the death of tomorrow, in the exhaustion of time, in our search for a new time within the smiles of auto-route waitresses and the tired eyes of air-traffic controllers at out-of-season airports.
I believe in madness, in the truth of
"To imagine is not to dream, imagination is rebellion, transgression, ambition, it is a voluntary act that goes beyond our fears to face their causes."
