Photography: life, validated
Photography in the everyday is the collection of tokens. In retrospect, I learn: yes, life, it was good.
Out of this reason does a new role of film spark justified sorrow. It will take time until the present, in which I am still tuned nostalgic by older prints, may be validated itself. Until, leaning against the wall next to the lab, I flick through my 36 fragments.
For now, then, my only hope are those observations during the capture of which I already know: one day I shall remember this moment wistfully or with a high smile on my lips; and yes, life, it is good.
