Seeing Order by Forgetting Names

"When I make a photograph
I want it to be an
altogether new object,
complete and self-contained,
whose basic condition is order;
Unlike the world of events and actions,
whose permanent condition is
change and disorder."
- Aaron Siskind
Photographer
(1903 - 1991)

"To see is to forget
the name of the
thing one sees."
- Paul Valery
Poet / Philosopher
(1871 - 1945)

Very beautiful photograph. It seems to escape gravity.
