“Contemplating the cloudy sky and the massive trunk of a tree under a magical light is difficult when one is alone. Not being able to feel the pleasure of seeing a magnificent landscape with someone else is a form of torture. That is why I started taking photographs. I wanted somehow to eternalize those moments of passion and pain.” Abbas Kiarostami
«Não busques na erva muda, Busca a erva muda.» Um poeta nórdico - Bo Carpelan - escreveu estes dois versos e eu assinalei-os com o meu lápis-encontrador-de-belezas."
