A picture is produced. A moment is held. Then it is ours. For 77 years, and counting.

“Children from the Homeless Children’s Aid and Adoption Society Home at Leytonstone, London, hauling in their Christmas tree. I love these children’s outfits and it was probably their last Xmas in London before they were evacuated. (10th December 1938 by Gerry Cranham)”


Post inspired by Sam Abell:

As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs.
