for a long time, this was my favorite picture

 by robert frank

I once interviewed a performer who said, "You know there's something sad about actors, because they need other people to do what they do." 
But it's the same with all artists really. Yes we need our audience, and our champions and our sponsors and our curators and collectors, but we also need each other to do what we do. 
And so to me some pictures are like a conversation with a friend. You look at it for a while, and you come away from it inspired. It's important to touch base... to renew the faith.
