The Arrow of Time, Diego Goldberg
Every year on June 17 — that’s his anniversary with his wife — Goldberg takes a portrait of everyone in his family, and adds it to this project. There are no formal preparations, so the photos reflect the way each person looked on that day. There is no fancy equipment either. Goldberg uses his Nikon — at first he used film, but now he shoots with digital — to take the pictures. "Even if everybody has a camera, and anybody can do it, nobody thought of such a simple idea." But, he adds, "sometimes the simplest ideas are the best."
Diego says he gets mail every day from all over the world, and viewers express one of two things: “I will do it when I form a family” or “How come I didn’t think of it?” In response, Diego says: "Find your own angle and stick to it. After a couple of years you’ll see it was worth the effort."
this is fucking awesome

The tension in her eyes, when I saw this young girl I said to myself ”I must take photos of these kids” I approached them and asked for permission, but the moment she saw me with the camera she said NO! I said I would pay you 2 dollars, her elder brother said “Let him take your photo” She said “NO!” I again offered 5 dollars everyone of them said “Yes” but she again rejected with a smile, I again offered and said “OK 10$ is my last offer” she finally said yes, after I shot a few photos of them she said “I didn’t say yes because of money, I said yes because you insisted a lot”.

In real life, I’m surrounded by the most uninteresting people. Especially at the moment. Only their facial expressions entertain me. No, I guess not. I guess they’re not really uninteresting. I guess it’s me. I’m not interested. Their interests are different from mine. How bored I am of listening to talks that don’t fascinate me a bit. Everyday. All day long.
When did you start turning people into slaves when their mothers gave birth to them as free human beings?
