“Photographs sometimes makes appear what we never see in a real face: a genetic feature, the fragment of oneself or of a relative which comes from some ancestor…Photography can reveal… a certain persistence of species….. Lineage reveals an identity stronger, more interesting than legal status, more reassuring as well, for the thought of origins soothes us, whereas that of the future disturbs us, agonizes us, but this discovery disappoints us because even while it asserts a permanence, it bears the mysterious difference of beings issuing from one and the same family.”
