In This Light

“Does the light descend from the sky, or rise out of us? That instant of trapped light…reveals to us what is unseen, what is seen but unnoticed….It shows us that concealed within the pain of living and the tragedy of dying there is a potent magic, a luminous mystery that redeems the human adventure in the world.” 
–Eduardo Galeano, from the introduction to An Uncertain Grace: Photographs by Sebastiao Salgado
