Prologue: I love great photos. Especially great photos of big moments. I can stare at them for great lengths of time, first seeing what is obvious, then perhaps what is not so obvious. A great picture gives you reason to be thoughtful and the ability to somehow pause the relentless march of time. They’re wonderful in that way, allowing the viewer to savour the triggered memories of the event as long as they’d like to and to exercise their imagination as they consider all the details of the image, attaching layer upon layer of value to even a small sliver of the photo, if they so desire.
