Photos that matter to me / Photos qui comptent pour moi

THE BREATH OF A BUFFALO

What is Life ? It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time.
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass
and loses itself in the Sunset.”
-Crowfoot….April 1890, on his deathbed

Tokyo, 1990 Tri X Pan

I am not a native American  but these words  have always moved me ;asides from the beautiful images it  conjures, the message “it’s gone before you know it ” becomes more and more powerful and pressing as I age. If anything, amongst my many photos, the only ones you’ll find here are an attempt to capture those fugitive moments.
