I feel certain that the largest part of all photographs ever taken or being taken or ever to be taken, is and will continue to be, portraits. This is not only true, it is also necessary. We are not solitary mammals, like the elephant, the whale and the ape. What is most profoundly felt between us, even if hidden, will reappear in our own portraits of one another. - Ben Maddow
The slice of time has become enormous in importance, and its hidden meaning is now perfectly plain, though so complex that it can hardly be written down. - Ben Maddow
The persistent problem in photography is how to look at it. - Ben Maddow
