When we view a photograph, a portrait for example, something interesting occurs.  Multiple lives are connected simultaneously; The subject, the author, and the viewer.

If you have ever seen a photograph, you would have shared a brief moment seen through many different eyes.  Each taking away with it a unique perception of that image.  If it was well made, it will generate a unique world filled with opinions and emotions that reside in the viewer.  This allows the image to transcend time itself.

Photography can be seen as a medium that not only captures a present or previous moment in time, but one that also speaks to the future.
