“The model moves slowly; she suggests, she tries to understand what I can’t explain. She tries to play a part I can’t follow. I hear myself saying no no do nothing. So again she waits, she stares at me. She sees my panic. I feel I’m letting her down. I feel guilty so I press the button, I say it’s great. Yes, I pretend once, twice, thirty-six times. I hope and I begin again. Time goes by, light falls. I lose confidence. I don’t want to be a photographer anymore.
Then, all of a sudden, but not always, something changes. I can’t say why. Maybe I’m just in the right place, at the right time. Or maybe I believe in it. However, for a split second, I see a sparkle of beauty that’s passing by, or is it simply the difference, or the surprise. However, everything goes so quickly now within that stillness, and I’m carried away. At last I like what I see. I can’t stop finding it, then losing it. And all day long I keep on, because it once existed.”
“One of my favorite photographers and a video I can’t stop watching because it speaks to me differently every time.” Emily Soto wrote and it could not be more true.
