Daniel Mendelsohn: “There is Only Looking and Finding”

Photographers Unknown, There is Only Looking and Finding

“I did and do believe, after all that I’ve seen and done, that if you project yourself into the mass of things, if you look for things, if you search, you will, by the very act of searching, make something that would not otherwise have happened, you will find something, even something small, something that will certainly be more than if you hadn’t gone looking in the first place, if you hadn’t asked our grandfather anything at all…There are no miracles, no magical coincidences. There is only looking and finally seeing, what was always there.”
Daniel Mendelsohn, The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million
