Abbas Kiarostami (* 2. Juni 1940 in Teheran; † 4. Juli 2016 in Paris)
It’s said that in the beginning was the word, but for me the beginning is always an image. When I think about a conversation, it always starts with images. And what I love about photography is the inscription of a single moment: it’s completely ephemeral. You take the photograph, and one second later, everything has changed.
