a photograph is a secret. . .

"A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know." - Diane Arbus

I have always loved this quote. Perhaps this is Arbus' version of Post Modernism, the viewer interprets a photo in their own way whether that was the intention of the photographer or not and even then the photographer's version does not reveal the truth or a secret knowledge. Or maybe she really had some other idea of what this quotes means :-)
