Perkis explains in his brief introduction that the teaching of photography, something he has worked at for nearly forty years, "provides no sure, measurable result." He is quick to get us started on a different foot, right from the outset, by discounting the 'quantifiable'. Quantity does not reign here, for the goal is a new type of vision, a receptivity to light, both physical and metaphorical. These notes, assembled for our benefit, are as important as they are humbly presented; a true gift.
