Lot Essay

'You could pass by a landscape hundreds of times and then, one fine day, suddenly, be attracted and captivated by it. The landscape is still the same you passed by many times, but the light has rendered it more attractive. It is the same thing for a face. It happens that, looking in a mirror, one may find one's face more beautiful today than yesterday. I think that this has nothing to do with one's skin, with one having slept well the night before, or with one being happy inside. Of course, all that I have mentioned is undeniable, but what has made one's face more beautiful today than yesterday is only light; adequate light. One must pay attention to the light' (Abbas Kiarostami)
