I had not heard of Amy Deputy before this morning, when I saw this link posted to a slide show on a photography forum. This slide show reminds me why so many of us are compelled to photograph and why those photographs are so prized. It always amazes me how emotionally involved an image can propell me into a strangers life. She has many wonderful quotes in the show, but this one stopped me in my tracks.
In your light I learn how to love
In your beauty how to make poems
You dance inside my chest where no one sees you
But sometimes I do and that becomes this Art.
- Jalal - ad - Din Rumi
