Photography Quote- Kate Morton

For the most part photography is viewed as a way to preserve memories and a physical item to hold on to for posterity.  I love looking through the few old photographs from my own family and truly appreciating how they lived their lives at that time.

I stumbled across this quote the other day from one of my favourite authors and wanted to share it.

“It is a cruel, ironical art, photography. The dragging of captured moments into the future; moments that should have been allowed to be evaporate into the past; should exist only in memories, glimpsed through the fog of events that came after. Photographs force us to see people before their future weighed them down….”
Kate Morton, The House at Riverton
