Most subjects photographed are, just by virtue of being photographed, touched with
pathos. An ugly or grotesque subject may be moving because it has been dignified by the attention of
the photographer. A beautiful subject can be the object of rueful feelings, because it has aged or decayed
or no longer exists. All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another
person's (or thing's) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and
freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt.
