JOAN DIDION
For however dutifully we record what we see around us, the common denominator of all we see is always, transparently, shamelessly, the implacable "I". - Joan Didion, The Camera I : Photographic Self-Portraits from the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection by Robert A. Sobieszek, Deborah Irmas , ISBN: 0810931974

To shift the structure of a sentence alters the meaning of that sentence, as definitely and inflexibly as the position of a camera alters the meaning of the object photographed. .... The arrangement of the words matters, and the arrangement you want can be found in the picture in your mind. .... The picture tells you how to arrange the words and the arrangement of the words tells you, or tells me, what's going on in the picture. - Joan Didion
