Mon appareil a capturé la beauté fragile et la mémoire des coins cachés, révélant la dignité
de l’ordinaire, dans la poésie du quotidien.  Il m’a révélé avec plus de force que des mots
peuvent le faire, que l’imperfection est non seulement intrinsèquement liée à notre humanité mais également à la quintessence de la beauté.
