 Photos are profound because they have such short lives. They are more like fingerprints, dead leaves, rain puddles, or the corpses of flies. 
 Anton brings the camera. I’ll bring a tuba, wear black, not shave, and take us to a burned-down Chinese restaurant. (On being photographed by his longtime photo collaborator Anton Corbijn)  
 Sun come up it was blue and gold
Ever since I put your picture
In a frame.
