A Single Photograph.




Muhammad Ali and his most beautiful daughter, Laila.

I love when photos capture so much more than simply the 'image'... 

I can almost 'feel' this overwhelming sense of love and tenderness gently making its way from his heart and through this picture. 

This is certainly a 'magic moment.'

A single photograph
—portrait of the moment—
is an inexhaustible epic,
a living tale beyond words
superior to a hundred volumes
written and fixed.

A photograph
is consciousness painting,
the instant’s art that opens
on the unbounded vistas
of the inner life.
