The ultimate wisdom of the photographic image is to say, ‘There is the surface. Now think, or rather feel, intuit. What is beyond it, what the reality must be like if it looks that way’. Photographs, which cannot themselves explain anything, are inexhaustible invitations to deduction, speculation, and fantasy. The very muteness of what is, hypothetically, comprehensible in photographs is what constitutes their attraction and provocativeness.

Susan clearly knew what she was talking about…but I’m afraid I’d have to take more time to contemplate all of that! WOW.

Some very deep thoughts that Susan shared! I love the vintageness this still life evokes with the subjects involved!

Oh my, “(t)he very muteness of what is, hypothetically, comprehensible…” I’ll get back to you when my head stops spinning. Of course it seems to that what is “hypothetically comprehensible” is factually incomprehensible.

This photograph could say, time is money but also time is more precious than money and that’s what I think.
