Photographer's Note

Photography is not just a means of seeing the world, but a vehicle to understand ourselves. On individual and social levels, photography is a way of documenting our lives, capturing important moments, places, and experiences, and sharing those moments with others. - Tim Mantoani

Who knows what a photo taken today may come to represent in ten, twenty… perhaps fifty years. Photography represents fractions of seconds, preserved and then put away for minutes, hours, days, years or decades before they are shown again to bring these moments to life. - Tim Mantoani -

In the corporate world, photography is an integral component of commerce, advertising, and information transfer. Photography brings the world to us: art, architecture, fashion, nature, war, and far-off lands. Virtually every aspect of our daily lives is influenced by images and to such a degree that we rarely even think about it. Photography has become commonplace, expected. - Tim Mantoani -

The power of photograph, both in moving and still form, has greatly influenced the development and evolution of culture, and humans as a species. - Tim Mantoani -

Photography happens in fractions of seconds. If you totaled the precise time it took to make every image in the book and combined them, it would only amount to a few seconds. In each image, in every frame, there is the moment when the photographer chose to record the image. It is not the camera that makes the picture, it is the photographer. - Tim Mantoani
