Nebulous Residue

White Trees, Series 3, No.3

White Trees, Series 3, No.3

An artist cannot endure reality; he turns away or back from it: his earnest opinion is that the worth of a thing consists in that nebulous residue of it which one derives from colour, form, sound, and thought; he believes that the more subtle, attenuated, and volatile, a thing or a man becomes, the more valuable he becomes: the less real, the greater the worth.

- Friedrich Nietzsche

I wish I could say I can take credit for this quote because I came across it in context, but the truth is I came across it on the Facebook Page this morning of one of my favorite photographers, Guy Tal.  If you like thinking deep thoughts about photography, I highly recommend his blog.
