"This book is my album of the faces of the people I have encountered along the way in the last thirty years, somehow held in the suspension of time, like particles in the air made visible by sunlight. I do not claim to have captured anything or revealed anything about them. I knew my mother and father my entire life, and not once did they ever reveal themselves to me. Whom have you revealed yourself to? What is seen here is just what is seen. It is the record of the moments I have shared with them at the point of intersection of our lives, now gently fading, already lost."--Duane Michals
