The Philosophotographer

Blurring the line between the sacred and the profane.

Keep constantly in your mind an impression of the whole of time and the whole of existence - and the thought that each individual thing is, on the scale of existence, a mere fig-seed; on the scale of time, one turn of a drill.

—Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

To understand just one life you have to swallow the world.

—Salman Rushdie, Midnight’s Children

What opposes unites; the finest attunement stems from things bearing in opposite directions, and all things come about by strife.

—Heraclitus, Fragment DK B8

—Blaise Pascal, Pensées

In a universe divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity.

—Albert Camus,”An Absurd Reasoning”
