The simplest, most ordinary documentary picture becomes a great truth about human fate ... 

~ Zofia Rydet

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever … It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

~ Aaron Siskind

We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.
