“Every Photo an Arcadia”
Every photograph should be, in a sense, a picture of Arcadia – “an area of central Greece whose inhabitants legendarily enjoyed their music and dancing undisturbed by war and toil … [where there was] age-old rapport between people and deities – ‘the spirits of the place.’”
I am asked to take photos of Moscow, of its crowded, confused – disturbed – streets. And for every one I seek Arcadia.
