“This Photograph is my proof. There was that afternoon, when things were still good between us, and she embraced me, and we were so happy. It did happen. She did love me. Look see for yourself!”

This Photograph is My Proof, Duane Michals, 1974

This photograph is so sad but so beautiful. Isn’t it funny how sometimes, things seem so long gone that we need to remind ourselves that they once existed – that once, they could have been absolutely everything but now, they are only a distant memory.
