“Photography frees us from the desire to possess, through photography we come close to ideas, people, places and objects that we are emotionally and aesthetically drawn to. Spending time and sharing energy allows us to maintain a part of the essence therefore becoming a part of us, we no longer feel the need to physically or mentally hold on.”

-Marzia and Sham
