From the foreword:
"If you were one of the unlucky ones left deafened by the sound of my shutter and blinded by the bright light of my flash, I apologize to you. One might romanticize photography and say it’s the price you have to pay to be immortalized, but the truth is that most of us photographers are simply experiencing reality as a tourist, bothering everyone with our cameras just to have those holiday pictures of ‘life’ to revisit later and leave behind after we pass away.
That is not to say that we are detached from reality, but that on the contrary we stumble through it being fascinated by aspects of it that sometimes become neglected in the process of growing used to the world we live in.
It's an examination of life itself, as well as an attempt at proving our own brief journey through it, by recording it over and over again.
A narcissistic act perhaps, but also one with visually provoking results that have the potential to be meaningful, or that at the very least can be misinterpreted as such. That is, of course, based on the luck that I didn’t end up losing my camera."
