Somebody’s Heart is Burning

Here’s what I love about travel:

Strangers get a chance to amaze you.

Sometimes a single day can bring a blooming surprise, a simple kindness that opens up a chink in the brittle shell of your heart and makes you a different person when you go to sleep–more tender, less jaded–than when you woke up.

Somebody’s Heart is Burning

Photograph by Wolfgang Tillmans. Tillmans is internationally recognized for creating work that captures evocative, intimate reflections of often overlooked objects and moments in everyday life. As a teenager, he kept a scrapbook of found photographs.

  1. I saw Wolfgang Tillman’s temporary exhibition at the Hirshorn this past summer. I found his variety of photographing techniques and diversity of subject matter remarkable.
