Yes well that's very nice and cozy if you happen to believe in God. If you
do not then one needs to search for a different set of values.

Dear Photographic Community:
I'm convinced that life is composed of those we admire and those who
disappoint; those who have contributed, and those who have squandered their
talents and time.
The great photographers of our time, Walker Evans, Weston, Atget,
Egglestons, Arbus, Winogrand, Friedlander, are but a few who have been
elevated to such artistic stature by the work and influence of one single
man, John Szarkowski. The article speaks for itself, and the man most
definitely made a difference for all of us as photographers. We owe him a
debt of gratitude, if not more, for this great and humble man made a
I am convinced that God places people into our world who have but one
overall purpose; lay foundations for others to succeed. What a great and
noble purpose! His work enabled great photographers to emerge and become
recognized for their work, and in turn these influential photographers have
touched our lives so richly with written-light. Thank you, John!
