There is no doubt that once you know the story behind a photo that there is a better understanding of its contents. The big challenge to photographers is to be able to tell the story with only the image. The other thing is that it is not really necessary to feel the same emotion the photographer has, but rather that a response is made that triggers off a connection to something in the viewers life or reveals information that is new to him. - Philip Wayner
The camera is a time machine and you are the pilot. It captures the present so that someone in the future can see a moment recorded in the past as seen by you. - Philip Wayner
