In the absence of a witness, nothing exists,
Fact can be established only in the presence of a witness.
As a photographer, I have the privilege of being an eyewitness
to bear testimony of human drama, joys and other circumstances,
planned or unintended.
The existence of the men, women, children and places
in these photographs will now become an undeniable fact to you,
as you are about to become a witness, through the power of photography.
