This site is devoted to documentary photography, particularly ordinary people doing ordinary things. No computer alterations, no setup photographs, no illustrations, no Photoshop creations. No animated GIFs, no scrolling marquees, no Java applets, no virtual reality, no bubble pictures. Not a single annoying cookie or garish advertisement. And no video, ever.
Just real pictures of real people.
"A man has not seen a thing who has not felt it."
--Henry David Thoreau
|"If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?" |
"What is truth?
I don't know and I'm sorry
I brought it up."
|"Talking about Zen all the time is like looking for fish tracks in a dry riverbed."--Wu Tzu |
"Vision is the art of
seeing the invisible."
|We know there is something special about great photographs, something that defies description in words, that can only be seen and felt. Henri Cartier-Bresson defined it as 'the decisive moment.' Robert Leverant's Zen interpretation named it, simply, 'IT.' Whatever the magic is called, these pictures have it.|
"The quieter you become, the more you can hear."
--Baba Ram Dass
|One more thought:"I have always been a great believer in TODAY. Most people live either in the past or in the future, so that they really never live at all...Utopia is in the moment. Not in some future time, some other place, but in the here and now, or else it is nowhere." --Alfred Steiglitz, 1937|
