A man shoots fashion in the street. He looks for something the fashion houses haven’t seen yet. He becomes famous. Late in his life he is invited to speak. He says:
“Beauty is a form of knowledge. If you seek beauty, you will find it.”
After the excesses of the 18th century, many would claim that beauty was a superficial pursuit. But I say:
Just because someone has a superficial idea of beauty does not mean beauty is superficial.
Because that photographer is right. Beauty is a form of knowledge.
