A Moment

Minneapolis, Mn – March 2018

“As long as there’s journalism, there will be photojournalism. They’re two halves of a whole. And, although they certainly won’t last forever, for the moment I don’t see either one of them coming to an end. Roland Barthes, in his book Camera Lucida, stated that photography, rather than film or television, is the collective memory of the world. As I see it, he’s right about this. Photography immortalizes a moment, which then becomes a symbol, a reference. Photography is a universal language; it doesn’t need translation. Its collective memory is a mirror in which our society continually observes itself…”

~ Sebastiã Salgado
