What is it that photography can do?

What is it that photography can do?

I see photography as a way of being a tourist in other people’s lives,
I see photography as a way of showing something personal, but also
Something not understandable neither with words, neither with sounds.

I see photography as a way of fighting against death,
I see photography as a way of escaping reality cause focusing in my own,
I see photography as a way of being a tourist in my own life.

I see photography as a way of zooming into issues that interest me,
I see photography as my main tool of communication,
I see photography as a way of remembering the things I want to remember.

I see photography as a dance around the world,
I see photography as a way of creating connections,
I see photography as history.

I see photography as a proof of my living and imagination.
But mostly, I see photography as the only thing that will last after me quitting this world of ours.
