Photography

What makes photography a strange invention is that its primary raw materials are light and time.

That's a great quote. A friend of mine usually says that 'photography, like sculpture, is light'. And I second this :)

Glad you like it Luisa.
Yes, that's why i love sculpture, it is simple and clean, shape and light only. Photo possesses that raw simplicity too.

John Berger has spoken many a wise word on the subject of photography, and this statement rates high on my list of personal favourites by Mr Berge.
