Cafe de Flore, Paris (by Jeanloup Sieff, 1978)

“La representación fotográfica es, por desgracia, nunca fiel al sentimiento que la provocó, pero imperfecta como es, es un ingenuo intento de posponer la muerte, para robarle tiempo a la caída de la luz, un momento privilegiado, que nunca más se repetirá, pero seguirá viviendo gracias a la fotografía – como esas estrellas que han muerto hace miles de años, pero cuya luz sigue viajando a través del espacio para mostrarnos lo que fueron.” – Jeanloup Sieff

“Photographic representation is, alas, never faithful to the sentiment that triggered it, but imperfect as it is, it is a naive attempt to postpone death, to steal from time a fall of light, a priviliged moment, which will never again recur, but will continue to live thanks to the photograph – like those stars that have been dead for thousands of years but whose light still travels through space to show us what they were.” — Jeanloup Sieff
