Another Sally Mann "Hold Still" Quote

"There is nothing better than the thrill of holding a great negative, wet with fixture, up to the light. And here's the important thing; it doesn't even have to be a great negative. You get the same thrill with any negative; with art, as someone once said, most of what you have to do is show up. The hardest part is setting the camera on the tripod, or making the decision to bring the camera out of the car, or just raising that camera to your face, believing, by those actions, that whatever you find before you, whatever you find there, is going to be good."
