    We have to think first because photography photographed not what we see but who we are. Second, because the picture is still in its infancy (compared with, say, the painting that is there from the caveman). Third because the picture changes all the time, the same image has several meanings, depending on how it is presented, how it is illuminated. Morning is one way at lunch the other and so on. It is ironic because the picture would freeze reality. It does not freeze anything, lives melting and besides, what is the reality? Room because what an image means varies greatly according to the beholder.

    Congratulations on your great initiative!
