CAMERA OR MIRROR?


BROOKLYN, CIRCA 1960
PHOTO: WILLIAM GEDNEY

"It is a continuously amazing thing that this impersonal machine, the camera, should render not only the surface of the visible world, but is capable of rendering so sensitively the personality of the photographer."

--William Gedney, quoted in Geoff Dyer's afterword, "A Long Patience," to What Was True: The Photographs and Notebooks of William Gedney

  1. Yes, yes, and yes to Los Angeles Somewhere, and to everything you've been writing and have written for a long time. Though He is demanding, He is close, simple, and common to all men.
