Photography takes note of the world. It shows how the world is, but does not change it. It only goes as far as meaning and wanting to change the world. Photography must be rooted in the instantaneous in order to reveal a vision of the world, a synthesis of its mystery and its objects. Photography may only acquire greatness when it is able to convey the authenticity of the transitory elements of the world.
