WILLIAM BLAKE

Auguries of Innocence
To see a world in a grain of sand / And heaven in a wildflower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand / And eternity in an hour.

THE GARDEN

I believe in energy. I believe in human energy as well as in the energy of all other living beings, such as animals, birds, trees or flowers. But I also believe in the energy of water, of wind and all known and unknown objects. Hence, I believe in the energy of a photograph.

And what is the energy of a photograph? Is it the energy of the space that is framed in the viewfinder, is it the energy of the photographer? I think it is a combination of the photographer's energy when he pressed the shutter button and everything that forms the energy of the photographed space, the sun and the earth, the land and the sky, the clouds and the air, the animals and plants, the wind and rain.
