March 27 A Quote:

“They were only photographs-of an event I had scarcely heard of and could do nothing to affect, of suffering I could hardly imagine and could do nothing to relieve. When I looked at those photographs, something broke. Some limit had been reached, and not only that of horror; I felt irrevocably grieved, wounded, but a part of my feelings started to tighten; something went dead; something is still crying.”

-Susan Sontag, On Photography

    1. Thanks for the comment Maureen! Yes, her writing is incredibly deep. I hope to read some more of her writing when I finish On Photography.
