"In French, there is a phrase - petit mort, or 'little death' - that alludes to the orgasm. For me, photographing is like this.I am a pack of nerves while waiting for the moment, and this feeling grows and grows and grows and then it explodes, it is a physical joy, a dance, space and time reunited. Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Like the end of Joyce's Ulysses. To see is everything."

Henri Cartier-Bresson
